During the summer I enjoyed a small shoot with aspiring local burlesque artist, Missy Bijou, with styling and makeup work provided by Ally Katte. We made use of my ‘living room studio’ using Bowens Gemini studio lighting and a Lastolite Hilite background. Cross-processing and black and white conversions were done with Photoshop.
Recently, I’ve been traveling around the Bristol area putting on photoshoots in people’s homes. All I need is at least a 12×12″ space, preferably more, and it’s possible to take real, studio quality portraits.
Family portrait sessions needn’t be a hassle when you can set up a professional-grade studio right there in a client’s living room. High-key, or ‘hi-key’ is something that many clients are looking for and has now become the dominant ‘look’ in high street portrait studios like Venture.
