My work with gorgeous miss Anitasha Smith ll Fresh face winner of Top Model SA

Good morning everyone,

I recently worked with the ever so gorgeous miss Anitasha Smith. She recently won Miss Fresh Face at Top Model SA. So I thought it was only a fitting time to do a update shoot. We focused on doing some swimwear shots, which we shot using both natural light and Artificial flash.

I really enjoyed it all, and the shots really worked well. I don't often shoot without flash, but I did a whole bunch natural light this time around.

We shot using my Canon 5d mk iii, and the Canon 135mm f2. We also used the Canon 50mm f1.4 for a bunch of the shots. The flash we used was the menik fn 600, with a 120cm octobox. Natural light we used a big reflector to both reflect light and soften light using it as a scrim.

We will have a behind the scenes video up soon too. For now please enjoy some of the shots. If you want to check out more from her or us please follow all the social media links below.

ALMOST GOT KICKED AGAIN /// PHOTOSHOOT WITH DONNALEIGH JONES

Hey cool people.

So a while back I worked with Donna again. We planned two different looks, in two locations. 

First we hit the botanical gardens by Emmerentia Dam, and as per usual, we almost got kicked out again.... We shall not discuss why, but lets just say they wanted us to grease the gears a lil.

Anyway we made a plan and we did the shoot as planned. 

First set up we used 3 speedlights inside one pop up umbrella softbox, which acted as a single light. The rest was natural light. 

Second location was merely a fire escape on the side of a building we walked up, funny enough we had less issue shooting here than in the public area of the gardens.

This was done using the same lighting.

please check out her social media links and follow for more from her

Gear we used for this shoot:

  • Canon 5d mk iii
  • Canon 50mm f1.4
  • Canon 70-200mm f2.8 mk i L IS
  • Peak Design Slide strap.
  • Df 400 speedlights x 3
  • Yongnuo 622c triggers
  • Kata Backpack
  • 1 lightstand
  • pop up octobox umbrella

CATCHING UP WITH KIMMI /// SHOOT WITH KIMBERLEY MAC LAUGHLIN

Hey guys,

I know this shoot was quite a while back, but I want to give a lot of my past shoots a chance to be written about, so heres one of my favourites, and it was a very simple but awesome one.

I have known Kim a long time, we have done many photoshoots over the time but all just fashion and portraits. This time she did some boudoir / lingerie shots, and one of two simple ones which I used to create some graphic art images on photoshop.

The set ups were all done with very inexpensive speedlights. Either using them to back light the model or light her from the front. I wanted to create more dramatic light with backlighting her.

Mos of the time the Speedlights were bare, and here and there I used a normal shoot through umbrella. I did  most of the shots using my 50mm lens. The rest was with my 16-35mm to get wider shots.

Im sure you will be seeing a lot more coming from this gorgeous woman. Please follow her on the links Below to keep up to date with what shes going to be getting up to. Show some love.

Gear we used for this shoot:

  • Canon 5d mk iii
  • Canon 50mm f1.4
  • Canon 16-35mm f2.8 L
  • Peak Design Slide strap.
  • Df 400 speedlights x 2

Squarespace portfolio site launch

So it took a while but i finally got it all together and sorted my website to be launched! Also to write a blog haha. Like i have told many people I do not really have a lot of free time to write a blog, but i shall attempt to make time.

blog will show reviews on gear iv used and what i think of it, also behind the scenes shots and images from model shoots.

Here and there blog posts from photographers i admire and have worked with and a model or two...

I have to say setting up my Squarespace site was really simple and looks really professional. I have a different site up but im not a fan of the layout so i needed a change. I heard of Squarespace through Scott Kelby's show "The Grid", of which iv become quite a fan of and watch frequently.

that said. thank you

I hope you guys enjoy my work! I will keep updating my page with new work. I think I have uploaded too much of my work which il probably filter off but for now its up and lets see what happens!

Regards

Robert Harris
