Today I was thrilled when I discovered my entries in January’s SWPP competition had so many award winning photos – four Silver Awards!
This Silver Award for Traditional Portraiture was actually taken as part of a Model Portfolio photo shoot for Gareth from Norwich.
It is a great way to finish a model portfolio photo shoot with a stylish portraits as they make like them for other purposes such as a gift for friend or relatives. In fact modelling agencies will always want to see some more straight forward pictures to see how a model really looks. This portrait is anything but standard though…
This portrait was posed using my posing table & stool. Lighting was a single beauty dish as key light and background light, which is only visible in the top right corner due to the tight crop. To help create the shadows and sculpt his face I used black reflectors on each side that were positioned really close.
Other Silver Award winning pictures for January 2009:
