I’ve posted a little about this before but here we are again. Most of my photography takes place on location, in the great outdoors, weather permitting, or in various locations such as churches, hotels, clients premises etc. A few times a year I get together with a small number of other photographers in a studio together with a model to freshen up our thinking and learn from each other. It’s a bit of fun for a few hours although there are limitations as well. Making sure you don’t get lazy and copy what the last photographer did is always on my mind and there are small issues with too many people in a studio, all keen to shoot.
Out of this last session I was determined to come away with something clean, modern and minimalist. I’m not a great fan of props generally and when I met the model my idea was to produce something that suited her look. The result is below, what I have styled a city smart look. Do you agree? Did it work?
