Today I did a fashion & glamour shoot with Nikki on location at a swanky apartment in Leeds to add new images to her portfolio. I love shooting on location as it allows for a great deal of creativity with the lighting and also gives a wide variety of backdrops which add variety to the images. Today we shot in front of the French doors overlooking the river and Leeds town centre, but my favorite set were in front of the mirror. However, I was niggled by the fact that I couldn’t get the far bedside lamp to light for added background interest – attention to detail like this is what sets an image apart and as a working pro photographer, my eye tends to scan the viewfinder picking up such things, probably more than concentrating on the model. These images were all lit with a couple of very old Nikon speedlights and shoot through brollies, once again showing that gear is not everything – great images can be created using minimalist equipment.
