Photoshoot 5- Lighting & Equipment


The lighting for this photoshoot is going to be a repeat of the lighting set up I have used for my last few shoots. Geraint and I have been agreeing that the lighting works for my style of images and the shadow works well along with the colours. After looking into photographers who have a unique and repetitive style, I have realised it is important to keep elements such as lighting the same to create that unique style I want as a photographer.

I am going to use the octalight on one side of the model, and a black polyboard on the other to emphasis the shadow coming in on one side of the body and face.
