First photoshoot in my new studio!

Today I tried my new photo setting!

My in-studio photo setting is finally complete, and I did my first experimental photoshoot! It’s taken quite a few months and a lot of research but it’s finally all set up. Today I tried it out for the first time and I am so happy with what came out! I cant wait to experiment some more, and get some of those new pieces I have been working on online.

The most challenging bit was choosing the right flash, but my trusted companion Google Search helped dissipate most doubts, as usual!

What it means

I can now photograph my own designs as soon as they are born, all year long, any time I like. This way of working is much more in line with my approach to designing, which is free from seasonality and collections, and simply grows and evolves over the years. Very exciting. I will also be able to re-incorporate more one of a kind designs and limited editions too, so keep your eyes open!

I’ve been photographing my own designs since the very beginning of my business, but I tried outsourcing that part of my workload for the last couple years. It was a great experience, through which I met some awesome people (first and foremost Debora of DeboraStudioFoto), but after a while I realised it was not congenial to my way of working, and ultimately procured me more added stress then relief from workload, so I decided to go back to in-house photoshoots.

I plan on having girlfriends of all ages, sizes and styles be my models. Keeping it as real and as full as personality as I possibly can! Beautiful is YOU!

I cant wait to start! If you are looking for me, you will find me editing photos compulsively and jumping for joy in the meantime!

    This looks fabulous! I’d love to know what you’ve decided on for lights/flash! I have a couple of stand lights with umbrellas but they’re not working that great for me. What are you using?

      I made my environment as white as possible, on all sides, and shut off all natural light sources. I then purchased a powerful 400w flash, and set it to one side, regulating it till I liked the illumination! There’s a lot of info online, it just takes a minute to get used to the lingo. I dived in and now I’ve already forgotten most of the details ;D
