A workshop of sorts ....

Click on image to view larger version.

Had two nice people, Mattias and Michael, visiting yesterday, to talk about lighting in a home studio and some retouching. Mattis was forced to be a model while Michael did the shooting and I changed the lights. The images here, were shot by me though.

Some of the shots came out rather nicely so I did some retocuhing and changed backgrounds on them.
The top one use 5 light sources. A Sigma 500 Super ( camera flash ) that I use for hairlight, two back lights and two front lights.

Below with a rather short dof..

Workshop av nåt slag ...

Hade två trevliga mäsnniskor på besök igår ( Mattias och Michael ) för att prata ljus i hemmastudio och lite retusch. Mattias fick agera model och vi gick igenom en rad olika ljus. Några av testbilderna blev lite trevliga så jag beslöt att göra en retusch på några, och byta bakgrund förståss.

Bilden ovan har 5 blixtar tex har en Sigma 500 Super ( kamerablixt ) för hårljus, två billiga kinablixtar bakifrån och två paraplyförsedda blixtar framifrån.

Helena III - Portraits

Third time shooting Helena, the lady with tattoes all over, and other body manipulations.
I wanted to try some old fashioned portraits with a very shallow DOF, as one theme. Earlier that day I had bought a pigs nose for another theme but also tried it here.

Camilla - very pregnant

Camilla, at the moment very pregnant indeed, called to check if I wanted to shoot some maternity images. As I have never done that I said yes instantly.

Camilla and I have been shootng some glamourstyle images previously, so I though it could look funny with a babydoll-night gown, high heels and the right brand of the cradle.

Sen fick jag en konstig bild i huvudet där barnet tittar ut med ett periskop, och kanske läser lite i dagen tidning.
I got a strange look in my head of the baby, looking out of mummys tummy with a periscope, checking out the news in the paper =)

And of course, you have to start very early to influence the future kid's taste in music. So with some big earphones around the belly and Spotify on the iPhone, there will be some groovin and dancing inside.

heres a rather normal pregnant shot.
