Studio Photographer for Stalagmite Theatre Company

Updated: Jun 13, 2018

Freelance photography within the studio of the University of Northampton for Third Years Performing Arts.

What the Clients were looking for:

  • Black backdrop/background to prevent distraction similar to my portfolio work within my studio portraiture photography portfolio.

  • Full on focus on the eyes and face of the model in the shot.

  • Lighting on the face: Either the Butterfly lighting or loop lighting which feels somewhat dark and mysterious.

  • Lighting for the scenery: Dark and the subject/model, submerging out of the shadows.

  • Expression of the Model: Serious, glaring at the camera/audience to catch the attention. Also looking somewhat intimidating to look at. (Researching into the Human Gaze on my Part).

  • Lighting Colour: Frozen Cold Blue which save time for the photo-editor to work with to get the right colour for that theme when on Photoshop or Lightroom.
