Mallory, in Two Parts 2

Mallory, in Two Parts 2

Last week I posted the first part of a photoshoot with Mallory, our model, and MUA Matt Goodlett. In that post I mentioned that part 2 of this photoshoot was radically different and below might show as to what I meant.

I saw this technique years ago in a article on KelbyOne. I saved the article but never quite got back using it during a shoot. Having recently picked Nick Fancher's new book Chroma, which I highly recommend, I saw this same technique laid out in one of the chapters. Perhaps unsurprisingly Nick was the author of the original article on KelbyOne that described this technique.

If you're interested in learning how this was done I, again, very much recommend picking up Nick's book. It's a great study on using color in photos and techniques to achieve many creative styles.

This was an interesting set as it was done in two radically different setups. While you'll have to wait to see the second portion to see what I'm referring to, the first set from this photoshoot is below. Mallory was our model for the day with my good friend and amazing make-up artists Matt Goodlett, Mattgoodlettmakeup.com, providing makeup.

The idea is fairly straightforward, Mallory has this great Glen Plaid suit and I wanted to take photos of her in it. Burgundy is a great color to put this type of suit in front of but oddly a tough color to find in a seamless paper backdrop. Superior Seamless provided the closest match with their #27 Flame roll and I'm quite happy with how the color turned out. 

Since this was done in my home studio, space was slightly limited. Initially I wanted to avoid shadows on the backdrop but given the space I had and the photos I wanted to get this wasn't going to be doable. Sometimes you have to accept the limitations of your space and, in this case, letting the shadows be helped increase the look of the photos overall.

Check in next week for part 2 of Mallory, in two parts!

I don't often shoot in black and white. There's not a particular reason why I suppose. But opening up a week for creative work seemed like a good opportunity to shoot in a way I normally wouldn't. Thus these black and white photos were made.

I haven't shot much in the way of fashion, something I'm trying to remedy, so I'm lucky to have worked with such a great team on my first fashion shoot. Abbie was not only our model but also did an incredible job of styling every look. Add Matt Goodlett in on makeup and the combination makes it hard not to get some great photos.
