In this blog post we will be looking at the planning for my first shoot with the actual shoot for my Studio Photographic practice project. For my first shoot with Sarah I would like to create portraits of Sarah in Cosplay with a red background. I will also experiment with college’s Gobo lighting attachment. With the Gobo I could then attach a coloured Gel and potentially make coloured polkadots like the photograph on the left shot by Emmanuel Giraud for French magazine 160G.
To achieve this images I’ll need to use a studio flash with a spill kill attachment with a red gel covering it, and one or two studio flashes with softboxes. To create images with the Gobo I will only need two flashes one lighting the background with the red gel. The second studio flash with the Gobo attached will be on the sitter.
I will also make sure to have a mac for the shoot, so I can do the studio shoot tethered to Capture One.
