Red Is The Colour

29th April 2015
My latest shoot was another Eterno Boudoir first….a redhead model, complete with a four poster bed. How could it possibly go wrong? (it didn't of course!)

It was an interesting start to the session, with yours truly being compared to Will Ferrell of 'Elf' fame. (I have never worn an elf suit in my life, so I think it must have been the hair….) Once the shock of being a lookie-likee was over, we settled into the photo-shoot, things moved along nicely. I used my Lupo light throughout, as the dull conditions outside meant ambient light was at a minimum. Using the continuous light tends to give a different feel to the images, and with the subject's red hair the shots turned out to be quite unique in style.

My model was great throughout the session; she posed really well, and I thought was really natural in front of the camera. This sounds like a small thing, but the posing of her hands was brilliant. It's quite a difficult aspect for people that haven't modelled before to deal with, as 'bad' hands can ruin an image. Well done to her!
My original edit was to be a set of colour images, purely because of the redhead aspect, but I tried a film type faded black & white edit on a few shots, which I think worked really well. I think stripping away colour from a photo is always a great way to capture the model's personality.

Until next time...
