Ulorin Vex Does Lady Ga-Ga
I’m still slowly working my way through the images from last weekends shoot. I think I have enough to keep me busy for months Obviously the chrome air streamer features very heavily in most of them as it was such an amazing prop and this shot is no different. This is another shot of Ulorin-Vex as part of our “Lady Ga-Ga” set (styling is courtesy of Arhseen Qasim). Lighting wise, I was using two quadra heads, one for the main light and one to light the caravan and in both cases, they were bare heads, so no light modifiers were used.
I remain pleasantly surprised as to to the light quality you get from the small heads even without modifiers. and I’m also pleasantly surprised as to the punch they have. For this shot, I was shooting at f22 and 1/250 so really taking most of the ambient light out of the equation and flooding the scene with the lights from the quadras. All good geeky fun The triptych below is a high(ish) resolution version of the 3 images from this shoot which I have posted to date, so if you’re interested in seeing the shots in more detail, then feel free to click away
I have to admit, apart from working with the lights, what makes this sort of photography easy, is also working with great models. OK, this genre of photography isn’t exactly what Ulorin is really known for, but working with her in this whole setup just lended itself to a successful and indeed a fun shoot. It’s actually perhaps embarrassingly easy.. just meter correctly, stick your camera on a tripod and click away to your hearts content. Pretty much every shot out of the camera is a keeper
