So, we are seven minutes into the actual shoot, Nick is starting to relax and I decide to change the set up, asking him to stand so we can work on some more poses.
After taking a few shots I change the lighting again by switching off the fill light again, a very subtle change but it changes the mood of the photograph.
Nick then suggests he change into a different top, this is good as it shows he is actively participating in the shoot with me, two minutes later he’s in front of the camera again, I’ve stayed with the single key light.
I try some more 3/4 length shots then change the pose again moving in for a tighter composition.
This part of the shoot has taken 12 minutes including the clothes change, I’ve taken 36 exposures and now I think it’s time to move onto a more ‘documentary/editorial’ style of photograph.
