As a photographer, I’ve always been interested in capturing my model’s personalities and uniqueness. Ever since I started photography in 2008, it has been important to me to sit down and talk to whoever was stepping in front of my camera that day to build rapport.
My photography has always focused on a minimal setup: typically only one or two lights in a studio, a plain background and little clothing.
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.
