Meet Damien McGlade, photographer and a long time friend. Although he did scare the hell out of me when I first met him. But that’s another story.
Whilst I only had the ELB1200 Action and Pro head to play with, I fancied my chances with pushing the Pro head as far as I could with the Skyport HS transmitter.
This is a very simple and quick portrait setup, giving quite a nice three dimensional feel to the image.
The above image is a composite of four images, suggested by my assistant Wayne. The original portraits were to be full length, in an environment conducive to an era when a string quartet would have been very much at home.
The technique demonstrated is “short lighting”, where an accent light is used on the far side of the subject’s face, which then has a slimming effect to their features. This wasn’t a portrait session, but a quick demonstration example, shot during a mentoring session.
This is the portrait of Wayne Myers I shot for the blog entry on the launch of his own career as a full time professional, as opposed to working full time for me.
Meet Joe Harrison. A gentleman who has just celebrated his 100th 100 break in snooker. I was asked by a local working men’s club to create the image, which would be framed and hung on the club wall.
Some of you will recognise Wayne, one of the photographers working with me. Yeah, I know he looks a little younger here, and there’s a reason for that. This was pre beard, and it was eighteen months ago when he qualified.
