Sinead Duffy, teacher and Andrea Roche Model is back in studio for her 3rd shoot. She is the current Miss Irish Sun and is going to be for an extra year this year. The Miss Irish Sun competition is an entry pathway into the Miss Universe Ireland competition. As there is no Miss Universe Ireland this year, that means no Miss Irish Sun competition ( I think… don’t quote me on that). So that leaves Sinead to hold the title for an extra year. I have shot with Sinead before ( see all Sinead’s Shoots here), always a great laugh working with her.
This was a test shoot that we organised with Stylist Laura Mullet (www.lauramullett.com) Sinead dropped with Rachel Wallace. Laura had some cool ideas looks for the girls to try out so it worked great. Sinead applied her own makeup for the shoot and styled her own hair, which is by Great Lengths. It was a small team for the shoot, but sometimes for quick fun shoot / test shoot days, a small team is all thats needed.
I shot the green jacket against the white wall using the flash bracket as I discussed before. I have plenty more shoots to come soon with this technique. I am still working with it a lot, figure out different ways to use it and get the best out of it. It definitely gives a different look to the images and there is a time and place for it. In using it more and more to know as much as there is to know about it. Just like any light modifier, to know it perfectly also means that you know when not to use it. For example, if you wanted to shoot a beauty portrait, you would not be using one of these due to the harshness of the light.
The shots were published in the Irish Sun and Sunday Independent Life Magazine.
