Primarily I must apologies for the absence of posts, it's beautifully busy at the moment and I'm falling behind with the blog. Closer to Christmas I'm sure a huge catch up session will ensue ;)
Here is the lovely Marina Sidyakina, we had arranged this shoot quite some time ago and finally our time window appeared last week.
Marina not only models, but also crafts dresses and period costume.
An extremely talented lady and an absolute pleasure to work with.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet and that's precisely the approach we took in the studio. I had a 170cm octobox with Elinchrom FX400 at full power as a main light source, a Walimex VC-600 with 70cm Beauty Dish at the lowest power for fill. This was swapped around for a few sots and also the Beauty dish was used as a key.
There was another FX400 camera left for a kicker at half power and a couple of silver reflectors to fill the shadows a touch.
An enormous round of applause goes to Marina for her great personality, immense talent and attention to detail, I'll very much look forward with working with Marina again ;)
Huge thanks to Henrik Kettunen and the most fairly priced studio in town and last but not least, cheers to Eero, my right hand man, for making everything run as smooth as possible and shooting the BTS.
