A chance came up to work with Nausicaa at the Boardroom studio in Derby. A cool studio location to work in.
Elena aka Nausicaa is based in Central London so when I spotted that she was going to be in Derby, I arranged to work with her. We had a productive shoot and below are a set of images from the first setup.
The lighting set up I chose was a single constant light which I reflected back towards the model with three mirrors. Which gave interesting light pattern shadows behind the model.
As I was shooting in monochrome. The styling of this set Elena chose the fishnets and a black body to go with the leather jacket. Hence the title fishnets and leather.

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.

I have worked with Ivory Flame (Holly) a number of times in the past, She is a great artist nude model, as the images show. This set of images were shot at my studio. During a session with Holly, I had purchased a pair of Paisley pattern tights and decided to use the edge of a settee to give a base shape for Holly to work against and show off the Paisley pattern tights and her figure shape. Lighting was a studio flash fitted with and striped softbox fitted grid plus an Arri contast light focused to give a strip of light coming down the background.
