Last week I had an excellent day with Chris Exner.
Chris needed various PR and professional shots for his up and coming 2022 projects.
We set about producing some lovely images that he could use across various media. Some business like and other adding a little more drama to the lighting.
I thought I'd write a quick article as the resultant images look wonderful. So much so, that I have also added a new folio as a showcase of the work. You can see it here
As usual, Viktoria Kohl did a great job on the make up with a very naturalistic, even feel to the overall look.
The images were styled by me and Chris.

Pixel Peepers' Notes & Newbie Hints & Tips:
Camera: Sony A7R III Lenses: Sony FE85mm f1.4GM / FE 16-35mm f2.8GM / FE24-70mm f2.8GM / ISO100 /1/125s shutter speed.
Lights: Elichrom with 2m softboxes and snoot
Everything in the studio is shot at f5 to make sure that there is a reasonable depth of field on the face and the wardrobe.
I found that at full power the flash heads had quite a slow duration and I encountered a 3rd image cut off at 1/250th sec whilst setting up. This is interesting as I have used this speed before without issue.
