One of my friends was wanting to rebuild her portfolio and was after adding a few new images to add to it. She asked me if I was interested in shooting her, As I hadn’t done a model shoot in quite a few months I jumped at the chance.
Nat came up with the idea that she wanted a shoot with her car, As cars are a big passion of hers and as she owned a Subaru impreza this would be the perfect car to use for the shoot. Next was for the location a friend of mine had recently opened up a garage for bikes known as the bike doctor along with sharing a garage with another business (mobi-mech) with thie garage being local I asked if I could use this for a shoot in which they both agreed.
With the location model and car all arranged i could now plan the shoot. My lenses of choice for the day was going to be mostly my Nikon 50mm f1.8 which would be bolted to my Nikon d200 due to the low f Stop this would help me get pictures in the low light due to Nikon d200 not being the best camera for the low light scenario and this was pre d7100 days for myself.
We went through the shoot changing poses and locations with in the garage and around the car as the garage had lots of tools/props all the makings for a really good place to shoot. The garage also gave quite an industrial/urban feel to the images which tied in well with Nat’s choice of clothing.
I continued to shoot for the hour getting some great images in camera which made me excited to get back to the computer and edit the pictures from the evenings shoot. If I was to do the shoot again I would probably want to choose the time of day so I had more light to play with through the windows to add more of a lighter feel to the pictures but apart from that I felt the whole photo shoot was a success.
