A few weeks ago I shot with Nick. Nick is a North East model and graphic designer. I have been aware of Nicks modelling work for some time. The guy is all over the social networks and is a talented designer. His day job is as Digital Director of Boxmodel digital media, and I have to say they do produce some high quality work. If you are in the market for a new website or branding then check these guys out. Any way it was his modelling career that caused me to finally meet him one overcast saturday morning. I managed to drag my assistant with me (my girlfriend, Sian) to meet at 9am. We started on Newcastle's millennium bridge.
I had Sian holding an Sb900 speedlight with a lastolite ezybox attached.
Nick had riden into town on his old motor bike so we decided to use it as a prop.
Nick had mentioned a street behind the Sage that had been completely covered in graffiti, so we headed up there to utilise some of the colours.
For this last shot I used two flashes and experimented with using coloured gels on the second flash. I placed it off to the right of the frame to fill in the shadows left by the key light. I placed a blue gel on it add a certain grungy look to the scene.
