The idea that formed the basis of this survey was based on several criteria. First of all, Irina and I wanted to create a female portrait without pathos, vulgarity and vulgarity. The shooting should show the natural beauty of the model, and the image should express nobility and grace. Pictures should emphasize the slender figure of the model and show it in a natural, organic light for her. Based on this, we agreed on the upcoming shooting, images and location. Also, for contrast, we decided to make a few bright and dynamic photos, which was achieved in the process of changing clothes.
After agreeing on the concept of shooting, Irina and I almost immediately and unanimously approved the location for shooting: the bright hall of the W studio. Since the photo shoot took place in winter, the daylight hours are very limited compared to summer, and we decided to start training at 10:00, which shooting would start from 11:00. The advantages of a photo shoot in a photo studio are that no one can interfere with your work, unlike photo shoots in public places, cafes and institutions. Thus, a psychological contact will take place between the model and the photographer, during which the model can relax, become real. The weather on the street was traditional for the second half of December - overcast. But this light was still enough to shoot without artificial light sources.
On the day of shooting, 15 minutes before Irina arrived at the photo studio, she was already waiting for the makeup artist in the dressing room to create an image (make-up + hairstyle). Previously, the makeup artist had information on the style and type of image, and I did not have to spend time on this on the day of the photo shoot. For 1 hour, Irina was ready to start a photo shoot. The shooting lasted 2 hours, but they flew by like 5 minutes. I worked with a 24-70 f/2.8 lens, a relatively fast all-rounder for which you can make both general plans and portraits. While shooting was taking place, we talked like old friends, discussed different topics, which positively affected Irina’s mood and allowed her to relax, to be herself. The psychological comfort of the model is just as important as the clothes and the interior, because the sincerity of emotions depends on it.
For 2 hours of a photo shoot of a female portrait in the studio, we took about 250 source shots, which after passing through the rejection turned into a series of 130 best photos. Further, the material went to the “paint shop”, where a complete correction was carried out with him in Lightroom. At this stage, on average 1 minute is spent on 1 photo, so it takes about 2 hours of hard, continuous work to paint a series of 130 photos. After, the finished material was transferred to Irina, where she was able to select better than 9 photos for retouching. But since we agreed that I would place this work in my portfolio, as a bonus, Irina provided the entire series (35 photos) from the retouched page. Due to the fact that Irina has clean skin and a slender figure, the retouching was made very minimal, easy corrections, cleanings. You can watch the finished product on this page.
