It was my first studio shoot with Fuji XT-1…..Well, not exactly, but similar conditions, LOL. I was in Atlanta shooting with my long time muse and these were inside a small apartment. I simply used the walls as the backdrop and threw 2 color gels at it and placed them feathered against the walls….moved her a few feet closer to me, since there wasn’t much room. Then used a medium softbox feathered from the left, and this way there was some shadow and highlight contrast in the lighting. I used the Fuji XT-1 and the 56 1.2 and couldn’t be happier with the magnificent results!
Angela did the styling herself with baby oil and LOTS of gold glitter! It was everywhere, LOL! Good thing for plastic drop cloths! I love how creative and colorful our collaborative work together always is! The Fuji handled the job well, just had to disable auto exposure preview since there was studio lights in use. Focusing was no issue. It’s not like there was any shortage of contrast for the camera to hunt for in this case. It’s about using your knowledge of photography, creativity, having a great subject, and making any surroundings work as your studio or outdoor location.
