Behind The Lens

This image of the lovely Aimie_Jayne Boulton was taken at Inspire Studio Salisbury England during a 60’s themed event organised by Chris Conway. I am a self taught photographer inspired by iconic shots such ad this one and I am currently working on a project called ‘Nostalgia’
This is one of my favourite images from a number of ‘sets’ of different outfits worn by Amie during the morning session
The lighting was set up by Chris Conway using a large octabox light modifer on a single flash lighti placed to the right of the subject.
The image was taken on a Nikon D800 equipped with a Sigma 50mm ‘Art’ lens and a Godox wireless trigger.
I am working on a project which I have called ‘Nostalgia’ which is based on a concept of images which could have been taken during the 1960’s. This iimage is one of several which will be included in the final collection.
The image was initially processed in Adobe Camera RAW and then fine tuned in Adobe Photoshop CC 2019. It was then converted into monochrome using the NIIK Silver Efex plugin.
In my camera bag
For portraiture My Think Tank Rollalong bag normally contains my Nikon D3s and Nikon D800 camera bodies-as well as Sigma 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm Art lenses along with a Nikon 70-200mm lens. The 50mm lens is amazing for this kind of image and coupled with the Nikon D800 is a formidable combination
It is essential to get the lighting setup right for this kind of image. Use of a plain background helps to focus on the subject and by converting it to monochrome all of the colour distractions are removed leaving the texture and pose of the model to draw your eye in. Use of a good studio with appropriate equipment helps to achieve the look you are after.
