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
  • Yongnuo 622c triggers
  • Kata Backpack
  • 1 lightstand

Carla Van Der Wath! Photoshoot and BTS

Hey all,

Just wanted to do a quick post and share some of my time shooting with The Gorgeous Carla Van Der Wath. Was shot  a month or so ago, I haven't had much time to post the blog about it is all. 

Carla gave me a shout the Sunday morning saying she had a issue with her other booking and needs photos done the same day. So i had a gap and we met up at Newscafe Bedfordview to do the shoot. The guys at News cafe were kind enough to give us the space to work in for the afternoon.  Was a pretty awesome shoot!

Carla is busy being signed into an agency. We will keep you updated on what she gets up to. Super keen to work with this girl again! super talented!

For the first scene we set up on the balcony. Shot out over the road. Some summer vibe shots. We  used one light with a big pop up octo umbrella softbox. 3 speedlights inside all at 1/2 power.

heres a few examples

Second Scene we set up inside for a bunch of fashion shots, and of course some portraits. Which is always my favourite! For this we used the same softbox set up. Plus we added in a 60x90cm softbox for fill light. 1/2 power. one speedlight inside.

Heres a few examples

Lastly we set up for a few beauty shots which we were not planning. So didn't have a backdrop for this. So we used the large pop up softbox behind Carla which fired light from behind her into lens and lit up the diffuser which made a nice white backdrop. Then we used the 60x90 softbox as a key light.

Lastly heres a quick instagram promo video we did for the shoot with some behind the scenes shots! Filmed and edited by the amazing Karla Alberts who does all our video for shoots. If you need to get in touch with her just drop us a email.

GEAR FOR THE DAY:

  • CANON 5D MK iii
  • CANON 50MM F1.4
  • CANON 85MM F1.8
  • 5 Speedlights in total (df 400 speedlights)
  • Yongnuo 622c triggers
  • pop up octo softbox
  • 60x90 softbox

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
