Elle Beth and Gem duo shoot (NSFW)

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 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.

Roswell Ivory

I  finally have had some time to start to work on my image backlog after a hectic few months of image making. In April alone I had 5 model shoots and a trip to the Isle of Skye for a weeks break and also a change to work at getting some landscape images.

Roswell Ivory is based in Milton Keynes and had contacted me a couple of times in the past to see if we could arrange a time for us to work together.

But somehow the dates we had available never quite matched up, or I already had a shoot booked when she was in the area.  So it was really good that in February we found a date that we both could do. This fitted into a tour she had organised so it meant that she was able to come up to work with me locally so we could be fairly relaxed with the time and a venue too.

This was a studio shoot as February is a just a little bit too cold for working outside, the studio has some good natural light so most of these image were shot with just the natural light in the studio.

The artist nude figure studies were shot with a single studio light on a simple black ground.

Roswell Ivory is great to work with and as she is also a trained  contortionist and as such she can make so great shapes with here body.

The location had a large mirror so we used this to create a set of legs and shoes images using some of Roswell Ivory vintage lingerie.

So here a few I liked from the session:
