Recently, I had the opportunity to work on a commercial shoot for a client who was relaunching her handmade leather journals. This was a great opportunity for me to work towards a specific brief. My preferred way of working is to meet before any shoot to discuss the details. This should always be the case for any shoot.
Next came the day of the shoot, which I came prepared and early. There were two parts to the shoot, the products and the model. I focused in the morning on the products to get the best from the large window and the super soft light from the cloudy day.
The next part of the shoot was with a model in a local café bistro. I brought out the studio lights and worked with a single large softbox to create some depth and contrast. If you know my work, you will know I like contrast, depth and mood. Choosing an area with a nice clean background and away from the other customers so as to cause the least inconvenience possible.
Suffice to say, we had a great shoot. I was very focused on what I was doing but I was very happy with the results I was achieving. The response I received from the client was overwhelming and it is how I gauge immediate feedback.
If you are interested in a commercial shoot with me then please do contact me. I am more than happy to discuss your requirements and get on board with your vision.
