week twelve contact sheets

The Story / The Concept: This time I was trying to create a Glamour/Boudoir shoot in it’s purest form. I placed Kristy in a simple white bed setup with a light toned wall behind her with nothing to be a distraction. I had her wear a white bra and panty with black trim so that the predominate color was her skin tone.  I had to previsualize the images in BW  so I could keep in mind the way the the tones would look.

Lighting: I lit this with one 84 inch umbrella from camera left using one strobe head. . The ambient light in the room and the excess strobe bouncing around acted as fill.

Camera Settings / Meta Data: Exposure: F2.8 @ 1/60, focal length 140mm, ISO 100, exposure mode manual, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, lens EF 70-200 mm f/2.8. The data here is from a typical image from the shoot.

Basic Lighting / Metering: The light from the umbrella and the ambient light together metered at F2.8@1/60. The ambient light in the room was  F1.4@1/60.
