Mia Liberum

I had a shoot with Mia for my female equality project last night and we shot a couple of images towards the end for fun. I’m still evolving my black and white style, but really liking how these came out.

Lighting is a single Elinchrom head on a boom with an umbrella angled down toward Mia with a large black board just out of shot. Very little post-production here: monochrome conversion in Silver Efex Pro 2 and a few tweaks in Lightroom CC.

Let me know what you folks think!

Ifa Brand

I recently had the opportunity to shoot the fantastic Ifa Brand — a Belgian model over in the UK for a few days. Here are a few shots as  a preview, but the entire set was published over at NIF Magazine:

I usually shoot within the studio, but I’d wanted to try shooting in more natural conditions and working with Ifa in her London apartment was the perfect opportunity. The vast majority of the shots were taking using my Fujifilm XT-1 @ f1.4 ISO1600 without any sort of flash.

At the end of the night, we took a few colourful shots within the wetroom using the Canon EOS7D with a strong direct flash from a 580EXII.
