BLOG 2018


School of English at the University of Kent had booked me over two sessions to cover the portraits of staff for the new website and also their reception area...
Portraits depend on light, good clean natural light and I had three options available today, my main location was a small office in the School of English, University of Kent at the Canterbury campus, a small room with some window light combined with the Profoto A2 and A1 (to light the background) gave a mix of natural and ambient light. As well as the typical portrait format I had been asked to cover some in landscape as well, these would fit in with the new University website and could also be used for editorial use.

I used the 24-70mm lens today, ordinarily I would use the 85mm prime or 70-200mm, the shorter zoom juts gave a little more flexibility and more freedom to shoot wider if needed in the smaller space.
