Fashion shoot at Wilton’s Music Hall

Yagmur is an aspiring model and when she contacted me looking for a studio and location shoot to help complete her modelling portfolio I was only happy to help.

We discussed a make up style shoot for some beauty images in studio followed by location photography. Yagmur let me roll with what and where I thought was best so I started the creative cogs turning so to speak. I knew exactly what would work well. I love working with rustic backgrounds and old looking buildings so I began my search and that’s when Wilton’s music hall popped out from something we call Google?

Once make up and hair was complete (by Amy Weems) I set up my lighting. I used a 2 strobe set up both with soft boxes. One was just above Yagmurs face and the other was below around half a stop lower to give me some fill light so I could get a soft flat looking image. With the final image (the black and white) I chose to have some light fall off for a more dramatic look.

Once the studio shoot was completed it was off to Wilton’s. I chose to travel light with a Canon 5d mk iii, Canon 70-200 f2/8L, Tamron 24-70 f2/8 and a single flash mounted to a monopod with a snoot attached (ok light ish). I knew the look I had in my head, a harsher spot light look, I love the high drama you can create with a single light and snoot, I think it’s because it’s the style of light you get in old black and white gangster movies!
