Dirty Dog Snow Goggles – Studio Shoot

If you ever fancy a tough brief to shoot then try shooting goggles!

The big issue with this product is the massive amount of reflection in the visor – it’s as good as looking through a fisheye lens reflecting everything in the studio, including me!

To get round this I used my studio infinity cove to reflect back into the goggles, carefully placed black boards to hide the mirror image of the camera and then blended two differently polarised images to create a smooth, clean and crisp image for each goggle shot. I’ve included a snap of the set to give an idea of the set, which is lit with three elinchrom ranger flash lights.

I was recommended to Dirty Dog by an old colleague in Wales. The client is really happy with the finished results(below) and the images will be going live on their web site soon. Many Thanks, Harry.

Panoetic are a new web design company based in Bradford and needed a quality group shot of the team for self promotion. I really enjoy shooting groups and CEO portraits and wanted to keep this image informal with the boys looking relaxed in a modern environment. I shot this with my Phase One camera and used mainly natural light with front and side fills of flash to keep there faces crisp and clean. I wish all the best and good luck to the boys at Panoetic!

Howz Trix!

She’s worked(modeling dog beds), rested(being stroked by child models) and played(pretty much with all her spare time), as this slideshow is testament to.
