Model Photography – Duality – Nicole (part I of III)

Duality - Nicole

A new idea formed in my head a few weeks ago and sat there… until I decided it was time to go and shoot it. as I looked for models I found one or two immediately that I felt would be right for this new series of photos I started to shoot now. From the two models I wrote to, one was Nicole. After finding couple of time slots to shoot we finally managed to meet up the week before last and shoot. It was our first meeting and shooting, but it went very well for that.

I always like to know my models before you work with them as relationship built on trust really makes it so much easier, but if you don’t have the luxury it helps to concentrate not only on the work as you would normally do, also bring trust and a good positive feeling over to actually everyone you are working with. There are times where it can get a bit stress here and there on shoots and its good if by then the trust is built so no one has a bad feeling about the shooting. I digress, we hit it off very well and got into a focussed working mode quite quickly and actually were finished much sooner that I had planned.

Nicole was a joy to work with and I think it shows. as for the setup on these photos and actually the two following posts, we only used one light source. Outdoor very close up with an octabank and indoors further away with a reflector and bare bulb.

The outdoor ones are obviously a bit more color corrected where as the indoor photos where just corrected slightly. The post processing in general was very slight and quickly made in lightroom, not really retouched anything besides a spot in two shot an a stray hair.

this set of photos below are two of the main shots. the one above is “only” an additional shot. of the main shots for this series I will post two other variants later this week, as they turned out very well too and after that you will see all the additional and left over shots. I hope you will enjoy looking at these.
