Colour and contrast is amazing! Truly in its own league! As always used the Fujifilm X-T1!

Kick it!

Photoshoot with Caileigh Stap – Fitness of Spartans.

Very standard setup in a way of lighting – the kick was assisted through the use of a bare bulb flash from behind the model, as well as in front to her right through large beauty dish. and of course some chalk to make the shot a bit more interesting!

Camera Equipment as always Fujifilm X-T1 and the 56mm F1.2 – Fujifilm X-T1

Lighting of next 2 images – also a combination of bare bulb, and a warm/high wattage tungsten setup. always nice playing with warm and cool tones.

The Effect of this image was combining:

  • Natural light (cold)
  • Tungsten bulb as main light source (warm)
  • Balancing white balance to tungsten.
  • Using the Fujifilm X-T1 and 56mm @F1.2
