My Style of photography took an interesting Turn on monday.Heres the story!(i'll keep it short)

I was supposed to be shooting a Random Girl for her modeling portfolio,Borring,but it's experience and i need it. Unfortuantly(at the time it was) she canceled,or rather,didnt message me confirming she was still up for it.

I Rushed around looking for another model as i paid for the studio to book it, And i ask My Fiance's Friend if she wanted to Model for me,She said yes! i was chuffed! Gemma's A good looking Girl and good Laugh,i thought atleast its not a waste of a day. Gemma Turned up with her friend Amber for support as my Fiance couldnt make it. We got to the studio and Gemma got Changed,and up untill that point,i thought i was doing a Fassion shoot regardless i was told,it would be for Gemma's Portfolio. Gemma's An Alt Girl, By which i mean, Go to the shops,and pick up a Copy of Front Mag,She's that type of girl. So we shot an Alt/ Lingerie Shoot. Half way through, we somehow managed to talk Amber into Modeling aswell.

Needless to say,i had a Good day,Got some great Photo's and im Looking forward to shooting some more photos! I'm looking to ask them to shoot again as they were great!
Any how,not completed editing yet,but heres 4 shots from monday.

Wow. You had a substantially better Monday than I did.

I'm Still Editing,i'll pop a pic or two up later.

You White Balance a Camera before shoot? :blink: :P

Ko, I have Mines Calibrated to work with Flash On a Custom Setting,Makes thing's easier.

The Guy Charged £20 for two hours,which was the least we could have. But im going to use a Better Studio Next time,which will be next month :) I'm thinking asking to shoot them again :)

what i meant was she doesnt use a grey card or anything that can calibrate her camera properly. My neice had a high key shoot done by her then a 3 shot montage photoshopped onto 1 pic. Every background was a different shade. I was appalled.

cheapest i can get for a studio is £100 for half day.

speaking of, am doing some pics tomoz at work for the board members. Best get my gear ready.

£100,thats Expensive! would be cheaper building your own.
Do you have Strobe's ? i'm looking to get a couple and set them up for home shoot's as the shoot from monday would look better in a Bedroom or living room :)

nice shots. Cant see the point of brushing the skin imo. Myabe just bump up the contrast and vibrance to give those photo more colour but i would leave the skin alone as it looks to fake.
I'm just wondering what setup did you have exactly ( ie. continuus lighting + flash or just lighting itself) and on what settings did you shoot? If you wouldnt mind sharing that would be great

I used 2 x 300 Watt strobes,with hexigon Softboxes. The Modeling lamp was on,but set to shut off as the Stobe fired.
Aperture was set at f10,Shutter was set at sync to 1/200 but as i was using cheap wireless triggers i reduced down to 1/160. and Iso at 100.
For these shot's i used my 50mm F1.8mk2.

Ive edited these ones better,as these were just rough edit's. Ive managed to filter out the Pink Haze,Which has made the wall's bright white and ive edited the contrast and tones.
ive smoothed the skin lightly,an it has improved the image,it doesent look fake,which im happy about. :)
