p.1 #1 · Kat is black and white


My dear friend Kat has a superb wardrobe and a fine sense of style. We decided to do a B&W shoot with dark clothes, her black hair, on a black background. She chose excellent dresses, gloves and a selection of jewellery that all seemed to fit together.

This turned out to be a bit of a lighting challenge - shooting in my living room is not convenient for what I wanted to try. The lighting is a single rectangular soft box directly above Kat's head, tilted to illuminate the black foam core background to a dark grey to provide some separation with her black hair an black clothing. She really had to play to the light - if her chin was down, the shadows were terrible Since the soft box was about 1 to 1.5 feet from her head, the vertical light fall off is very strong!

I think you did very well with these. She looks like someone you can work a lot with.

Love them all, Tony!

Looks like a great model to work with... really like her expression.

The processing really works well here.

Thanks for the comments. This shoot with Kat was quite special trying out new ideas for posing and lighting. I am going to revisit some of this using a beauty dish instead of a softbox.
