Myself and two photographer friends, Nammo and The Amazing Moo meet up once a month on a Sunday to play around with various lights, light modifiers, and learn a bit about different lighting techniques for portraits. The venue for this shoot was an old hairdressing salon in the main street of Cessnock, that has been turned into a space made available to artists for a small fee.
Over the course of several months we have experimented with using just one light, right through to using a combination of 4 lights with reflectors, umbrellas and soft boxes. For this session we had no model organised, so thankfully The Amazing Moo stepped in and was our model for the afternoon! Thanks Moo!
Here are a couple of shots from the session. The background was provided by a very colourful art piece in the room. Lights were used here to light the model, and to also light up the background.
