Here are the results of a recent duo shoot with the models Elle Beth and Gemma H. They were all shot at my studio space using studio lighting. I have worked with both of these models in the past but not together. So when a chance came up to do a duo shoot with them. I thought it would be different and worth arranging for them to visit. Images I had seen of them working as a duo showed they had a good understanding of posing together.
For the Artistic nude set of duo images I chose to use a two light set up. The lights were fitted with a Rectangular Softbox approx 50x130cm, a diffusor and an egg crated grid to make the light very directional. The main light was to the Left hand side (LHS) slightly in front of the models. The second light was to the RHS and set to a stop lower than the main light.
Shoot: Duo shoot
Instructions: To create good duo shapes using posing blocks; the floor; and standing.
Lighting: Elinchrom BRX 500 studio lights
Models: Elle Beth and Gemme
Styling & MUA : Elle Beth and Gemme
Here are our results…
The two images above have all been processed in Photoshop converted to monochrome and then toned.
The image below I left as a straight monochrome as I thought it suited the strong pose from Elle beth better.
The duo portrait image was lit with studio flash in front of which I had placed a scrim to give some nice soft lighting I wanted a natural messy hair look and the models just had foundation and some lip gloss added.
