L3 - Kelly home practice fashion shoot

Waning to get a bit of practice for Saturday's main event I booked a day off and went to Kelly's home.

As discussed previously the set up was simple a high hard light with a softbox  fill in at the front, white paper background. The style I was looking for was fashion with a shadow on the background. I also wanted to get some product into the shots such as watches, jewellery as well as fashion clothes.


This one was a continuation of the jeans style with watches on Kelly's arm, I was thinking of something similar to the R.M.Williams catalogue that Pip had given me, I will be adding a large scale image of one of the watches along with some text of some sort.

ISO: 100
Aperture: F/18
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec
Focal length: 67.0mm

as with all the shots I was happy to have a small aperture and having a deeper depth of field because I wanter the shadow on the background to be part of the image





This one is a straight clothes fashion style shot similar to the type of shot you would get in a clothing catalogue, it is very similar to the online clothing advert for Holly Wiloughby's clothing range (see below right)


ISO: 100 
Aperture: F/13 
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec 
Focal length: 70.0mm






The next idea was a sort of jewellery advertising shot with Kelly just out of shot and her arm with a watch in shot, everything out of focus except the watch.

ISO: 100
Aperture: F/14 
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec 
Focal length: 105.0mm


This is the original shot


Very minimal processing on all the shots a slight tweak for white balance, some patch and clone to remove blemishes, a smidge of blur to smooth the skin, and to finish perhaps a crop, but not on all of them.














As you probably know by now the following shot is my favourite, I could take this style of shot all day.


This was the setup I used one high level softbox with a tri-flector fill in underneath creating the classic clam shell lighting





ISO: 100
Aperture: F/14 
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec 
Focal length: 105.0mm

Close crop long focal length to slim the perspective, I think Kelly has the look similar to Mylene Klass  on this one?

Again basic post editing patch, clone, blur and crop.














ISO: 100
Aperture: F/14 
Shutter speed: 1/200 sec 
Focal length: 105.0mm

Exactly the setup as above but this time as a product shot of a Tiara, again minimal post editing as above

  1. Hi
    This is a great set up jim and just goes to prove what can be done in a small space and yet achieve work which is of a very high standard.
    This goes beyond P2 and read the criteria carefully and try to aim for an accurate grade and I will see if it meets it.
    This meets C3 as well as you are planning and show evidence on equipment and if you put a little about health and safety you can claim for C4 as well.
