Striding out towards an artistic future
I recently did a portrait session with Lou Collins an up and coming artist. She paints beautiful textured nudes using punchy colours and translucent materials. The works are both exciting and vibrant. You can find her original painting and prints on her website at: https://www.wildat-art.com/
We had some fun with this shot, and Lou looks great in her Loubitans, with the wind machine at full tilt. Why not!
I hope you enjoy viewing the image – Colin

Pixel Peepers’ Notes & Newbie Hints & Tips:
Sony A7rIII – FE 24-70GM f2.8 @ f5.6 – 1/125s – ISO100 – Tripod – Elinchrom lights and reflectors on an infinity cove.
Quite a tricky shot to set up. There are two Elichron monoblock lights with large softboxes, both left and right, keeping the shadows in check. Under the light on the left there is a half gold reflector, adding warmth to the skin tone. There is a rim light to the back and left of the model. There are also two 8ft x 4ft white polyboards either side of the model, and she is standing on the infinity cove in the studio. Lastly, there is a wind machine at full tilt to the left of the model.
If I was nit picking, I would mention the fact that the rim light is lighting the back of the magenta artwork that she is holding, and it’s revealing the frame, but that would make me a pedant, so I won’t mention it
