30 Minutes in the Life: May 2015

I love it when Mark decides to open up his studio to his meet up group.  Mark sets up all the fancy lighting equipment, and explains to us what he has done and what he aims to get out of the shoot.

We get to hang out and take photographs of the model he has found.  Today it was Rachel’s turn.  Rachel was a beautiful young lady, who was a lot of fun to work with.  She was incredibly patient and willing to try what the 5 photographers asked of her.  As we eased into the shoot so she became more comfortable doing her own moves.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rachel and would happily do so again.

I do have to confess though that this is not a straight 30 minutes as I would have only had a 4  images.  What happens in the studio is that we do a set up, then all 6 photographers shoot one after the other, then we do another set up and the same happens again.  So what I have done here is accumulated my shooting time to 30 minutes.

    • Thank you Polina – I don’t have my own light set up, and so I don’t get to do this unless I go to the studio. But I have fun when I do go there.
