As some of you know (because I’ve been talking about it to the whole world) I’m currently in the process of applying for my MA in Photography, and one of the things that is sorely lacking from my portfolio are portraits. I haven’t done any portraits since I shot the band Hansom for their album and press kit in February of this year, and I know that I have a lot to learn when it comes to lighting faces and the like. I contacted my make-up artist friend Abi for the collaboration, asked my BFF Ysabel to model for me (yup, I just used BFF somewhat seriously) and asked my friend Jess if I could borrow his fabulous lenses, because I am too poor to rent it from other people who aren’t as nice.
Ysabel was a real trooper, but I really love the contrast between her “modeled” photos and the one where I was able to capture the real her.
I can’t wait to do more portraits and collabs! :D
Also, many thanks to Daylight Studios!
