Wow, I haven’t updated my blog in a while. Sorry everyone…I’ve been really busy lately with shoots and life. This blog post will be short and sweet about this great shoot I recently did. Also, if you are to get anything out of this post, it should be to keep your portfolio and contact information up to date at all times because you never know how your next job will come through…
A few weeks ago, I was contacted through my website inquiring about a portrait shoot featuring a product. The woman said that she found my portfolio and really loved my style of portraits and lighting, and this was exactly how she wanted her product to be shot. She owns a bridal line making veils, fascinators, and jewelry.
We spent a little over a week going back and forth on logistics, contract, deliverables, and casting. All of it came together really fast at the end. We finalized the paperwork, shot list, and casted a beautiful model and her HMUA friend on Sunday with our shoot the next day, Monday. Talk about a whirlwind.
Thankfully our model, Jessie, was the real-deal and made the shoot go so so smooth. I also shot this entire session in my studio with my Fuji X-T1 with my XF56mm, XF35mm, and XF10-24mm. This camera performed as good as when I had my Canon 5D3…except that the image quality is WAY better on the Fuji. And my back didn’t kill me by the end of the day 🙂
We shot a LOT of product. I spent the time to light everything just right so I could cut down on my editing time. Here are some selects highlights from the session.
Gear Used: Fujifilm X-T1, XF56mm f/1.2, XF35mm f/1.4, XF10-24mm f/4.0, Alienbees B1600’s, grids, Pocketwizards, Westcott 28″ softbox, Westcott 50″ softbox, and a lot of water and goldfish crackers for everyone on set (our model loved them).
Post Production: Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC 2014, Imagenomic Portraiture.
