Here is another well overdue shoot to appear on the blog. The blog is well behind these days. The plus side is that it means that I am too busy to shooting and editing to be able to put up posts. Although I don’t put up every shoot that I do, I do try to get the majority of them up. So here it goes.
I recently had the pleasure of shooting with Faye Rooney (Miss Wright Venue 2011) again recently. Faye came for some new shots. I first shot Faye back in October 2011 when she was the Miss Wright Venue. She is now an employee of the Venue, looking after the VIP Penthouse.
I cracked out the Orbis Ring Flash ( www.orbisflash.com ) for some of these shots. I haven’t used it in a while so I said why not. The orbis has been pretty good to me in the past. Not the cheapest accessory, but it is great quality. It is super strong and very well made. It has taken a few knocks from me now and hasn’t got a mark on it.
In terms of a showing you a lighting setup shot with the Orbis….. there is not much to show as it is on the camera. The light comes from the same direction each time. The only thing that you can really vary to get different effects is the distance your subject is from the light and the distance your subject is from the background.
Nicole Spain from Flutterby Fashion Styling was at hand to source the cloths for this look and the other looks that we shoot on the day. Amy MaGuire ( http://amymcguiremakeupartist.blogspot.ie ) provided her fantastic make-up skills for the day.
