This set of images features the model Pippa Doll. They were taken at my studio just using natural window light. The main light was high key and was coming from behind the model and was flooding the area. I placed a couple of white reflectors either side of Pippa to reflect the light back to her figure. A really simple setup which gave good high key image results.

  • Model: PippaDoll
  • Lighting: High Key back lighting
  • Camera: EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Lens: EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
  • Focal lenght: 125mm
  • Aperture: F2.8
  • Shutter speed: 1/40 sec
  • ISO: 100
  • Outfits: Men’s white shirt

The camera was set on a tripod as I was using a slow shutter speed, so it needed to be supported.

Processed in Photoshop with a slight white toning added to give a slightly warmer feel to the mood

I have worked with Pippa Doll a number of times as she is also a dancer and you can see some of the freeform shapes I caputred when working with her as a dancer by clicking on this link

If I am working with dancers locally then I will shoot them at Silkwood as it has a good ceiling height and a good curve to work against. You can see a few of the images of Erica Mulkern shot at that location by using this link.

Xenia is published model and is a good to work with. For this shoot we worked on a range of styles from simple styled fashion to a more edgy fashion look, and even a few natural light protraits (the second to bottom image was shot using the locations Natural light).

The lighting of most of the images was a single studio flash fitted with a large octa soft box. Some image were shot with a egg crate grib to give a more controlled light spread.

Here are a set of fun edgy fashion images from a remote shoot with Zoi – I first worked with Zoi via a remote setup (with the model been in the Haigh in the Netherlands and I was at home in the UK), in 2020 and you can see some of the results in this post here. In the first shoot we did we just used the natural window light of the apartment. Which at the time of day gave some nice results.

This time Zoi had invested in a Aputure Strom C300d LED light, which gave an impressive light output. We used it in this set up as a hard light to get the strong shadows behind her.
