I met the lovely Dr Margaret Rooney at the CQI photo studio in London today in order to take her photograph for an editorial piece for Quality World Magazine. I was able to use my Godox 600 Pro light for the first time as the main light source and I must say it coped very well during the portrait session, producing consistent colour balance in all of the edited portraits.
Thank you to the lovely staff at The Raj Hotel in Victoria today for sorting out an outside space for us to shoot some portraits of the Management Team of Dimension Data at such short notice. We got some lovely ambient light shots in the hotel courtyard when it was decided that the room we were to shoot the portraits in was too small.
On a photo assignment at Gartner Ltd, Egham, today, my task to photograph 118 corporate portraits in a 40 minute lunch break. A quite liberating photoshoot in that one had to ditch the niceties and get down to business, reminded me of my old portrait studio days at Covershots International!
Headshots taken at Keningtons Chartered Surveyors using my new Grey Lastolite collapsible background...first thoughts on this background is the convenience, but slightly surprised at the moire pattern I encountered from it. Not much of a retouch but a shock nonetheless from an expensive piece of photographic kit!
Headshots taken at the Brook Surgery at Golders Green, commissioned in order to publicise their relocation to new offices. Lesson learned: always check your bag before the photoshoot for compact flash cards as I left mine behind at the studio and had to shoot on a 1 gig card, JPGS and not Raw, to my horror I found that no one sells CF cards on the high street anymore!
Mr Gary Illingworth sat for this shoot at the CQI Studio in Central London. We used studio lighting to pick him from the background and give his portrait presence and drama.
