Blog

Welcome to my blog, this is where I post random images, thoughts and musings on photography.  This is kind of a diary and not all photos will be the end product. Its basically a dump for all my ideas and mental chatter. All opinions are my own and should usually be taken with a pinch of salt. 

Forzana and Afsi

We have tried for a long time to organise a shoot with Forzana and Afsi, but for what ever reason we have never managed to get it sorted due to our busy schedules. Anyway we finally managed to arrange something. Luckily this coincided with the acquisition of a Canon 5D MKII which we were dying to try out.

I started off using mainly the large Octa as I really like the high contrast look.

Both of these were shot with the 5D MKII and I have to say I was impressed with the results. The sensor really does capture a level of detail which I have only ever seen in files from medium format cameras. That said I very quickly went back to using my Nikon.

We then tried a flatter approach to lighting by placing the octa in front of Forzana to create a more editorial fashion look. The image was made black and white in Lightroom.

Then we just had a "lets see what happens" session at the end. Sometimes these parts of the shoot can yield some good results, but mainly its just to try something different and see how it goes.

Thanks for reading.
