Remote shoot with Riona Neve

Following on from my remote shoot with Zoi M via her remote shooting set up. An opportunity arose to work with Riona Neve again using Zoi’s remote set up. Riona is a Belgium based freelance model, so to get the chance to work with her remotely in these times was a real plus.

Zoi’s set-up uses a Fujifilm XT3 with a couple of fujifilm lens, For this shoot we mainly used a Fuji XF35mmF1.4 R lens. The camera is is linked to Lightroom Classic via the Fuji Plugin for Tethered shooting. The desktop is linked via Remote Desktop. So you can see what the camera is seeing and work the focus and controls. The session was again all shot with the natural light coming into the room from a large window. It gave some really soft light for the first setup.

This was a short session of around an hour so not much chance to do many outfit changes. Three in total however the sets we did managed to shoot produced some good and different images.

The first set was just some simple head shots with Riona wearing a linen dress againt a coloured textured background. Following on with an edgy fashion look of a black body and black boots.

Below are three images from that set again the lighting was the large window. I titled the set – In my black boots. Really liked them in monochrome

For the final set I move Riona to the window to get some great side light below is one from that lighting set up.

It was great to get the opportunite to work with Riona, and again thanks to Zoi for assisting durin the shoot. I hope I can get to work with Riona again soon.


Elle Beth – Red Chair. NSFW

Here is a collection of 9 images featuring the model Elle Beth and a red chair. They were all shot in an old warehouse location in central Nottingham. The lighting of these images was just the available natural window light of the location.

After scouting the location we found an old broken red chair that I felt would make a good prop for this set of images with Elle Beth. The theme of the set was around the idea of Elle finding an old lost chair, which was now in sad state of repair and the memories emotions it brought back .

Elle who I have worked with a number of times in recent years, produced a good set of different poses which I thought showed different emotion in each image in the set.

The choice of monochrome seemed to suit the subject and location. As in colour the red of the chair seem to dominate the image a bit too much in some of the shots. However the image below I kept in colour as the skin tones worked well against the red chair in this pose.

The images above were all processed in Lightroom including converting to monochrome. They were then exported into Photoshop for a few tweeks and final finishing.
