Studio Portraits - 2.3.19

Recently I’ve been taking a lot of portraits in order to build the concentration category of my AP portfolio, and because it’s still quite cold outside, many of these have been shot in the studio. For each of these photos, I got big pieces of fabric and hung them behind the subject for a coloured background. I used one key light, either a softbox or octobox, at 45/45 on the subject. I was really trying to experiment with foreground in these, as you can see with the mirrored reflections, flowers, and hands. I’ve also been trying to focus on getting shots at a variety of widths whether that be up close, mid length, or full body. Here are some of the photos!
