MJ Portrait Fashion style photographer

November 17, 2017

Very honoured to be asked by Melissa to take a set of studio shots to story board her business in Newtown. Melissa had organised a client, who knew why I was there, a hairdresser and make-up artist for this shoot - my role was to capture the essence of a typical mornings MJ Portrait Fashion shoot.

Melissa does not like to use flash for these kinds of shoots, only natural light - which is a skill in itself especially when the available light on an overcast day is at best minimal. As Melissa normally shoots near to a window and uses reflectors, I needed to capture her and her client from all angles which meant the light for me was difficult to embrace - to say the least - luckily the ICE Light stick is an incredible tool to have. Small, portable and very bright but a good kind of bright, providing a natural level of light that can be fully adjusted to suit all situations, that and a fast Sigma Art, 1.4 lens.

It was great to see how Melissa works, chatting and joking to her client and creating a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere putting the client at ease - and me as well !

Thanks to Melissa for inviting me into her studio - a great mornings photography. I need to think of some better jokes next time, your husband knew them all - darn!
