Studland Set 2

Continuing on from my last post about my Studland shoot, next in line was “Mistakes”, inspired by the saucy seaside postcards that you could buy in the 50’s and 60’s.

This was the inspiration card

The Shoot

The girls went off to change with Nikki fussing over them and I and my trusty assistant for the day, ‘Biscuit’, broke set and moved on to the next location. The sun was in and out of the clouds and so I decided to use two Bowens with reflective umbrellas to give an even light over both main subjects. Set up either side of camera and at head height. I used a shutter speed of 1/125 at F11. This gave me a wide depth of field making sure the main subjects and the audience were in focus.

With the camera on a tripod I set the models in position, marking their spots with coins so that I could always have them in the right part of the frame. After 18 shots we had it in the bag and here is the result.
