Today Georgina Skinner and I met to do a few head shots. The sky was a bit cloudy, which was great because it means softer shadows. We did a first set of photos at Emmanuel College, but then headed out to West Cambridge because I had only brought my 50 mm lens, and for more close-up portraits the 85 mm lens really shines.
When watching videos of other people photographing you pick up a few things. One thing I had seen a few times was placing a reflector in front of the model, shining light from below into the face. Chris helped us with the reflector, and it made a big difference. I am really happy with how the shots turned out. Many thanks to Georgina and Chris for a fun photo shoot!
