This week it was all about shoes, the assignments were mainly product photography based with the exception of two images (cover page and a supporting image for another kind of look). The Cover Page assignment was late last week thursday in the tiny room they call a studio *rolls eyes* I worked with a 2 light setup using 1 shoot through umbrella and sb900 for key light and an sb 28dx with a on the spot snoot for a directional spot light gelled with red for one shot. and the other gelled yellow and bare bulb. Here are the respective Images, the first being the cover photo and the second being a full page image in the magazine at the end of the shoe feature.

My Favourite image is without a doubt the lady in red. The second one is nice as well, however the light spil on the fabric in the background didn’t sit well with me, had no time to correct though as the photoshoot was done minutes prior to the deadline -_-.
