This article is important to me as, for the first time, I was handling a studio by myself. On top of that, I played with gels (color filters), which was also new. I learnt a great deal, but it also convinced me I wanted to do more portraiture.
As usual, there’s no photoshopping in these shots. The backgrounds are all raw or obtained with lights.
Here is another example of the CMA sessions. The exercise this time aimed at shooting a portrait revealing an important trait of the subject.
Flashback to my CMA spring training session after this long break ! Not totally happy with the result but it’s the point of training, isn’t it ? In this case, the idea was to practice framing and “breaking” the frame.
First of the CMA series, dedicated to the product a studio photography class, is Acces-sorry. A tribute to improvisation and desperate research for ideas, or when creativity is forced.
I got myself a first studio experience ! There isn’t much research on the composition of the portraits below, the exercise was more about lighting. Still, they show the definition you can reach in such ideal conditions, and that’s amazing. I hope for more opportunities to practice with such equipment.
