Here are my favourite shots from a photo shoot I did with the delightful Franck Qi @FrancksFlow in November 2022.
Chiaroscuro in a white dress
Lessons learned: The documentation for my camera says the "zebra striping" facility "warns you that your highlights are blown out". This made me to lower the exposure a couple of stops. I thought it a bit odd at the time and it seemed to be the wrong direction. I now think the stripes might actually be warning that the colours are out of gamut - which might just be inevitable in a high contrast image anyway. Next time I'll shoot a little brighter and add contrast in post.
Satin and fur by the fire
The fire didn't generate much practical light so I placed a warm coloured lamp nearby. This could probably be done better with a little planning.
As the shots were for painting reference the refelection in the glass safety doors isn't a problem, I'd replace the fireplace from another reference image anyway, but I'll remove them next time.
The images might benefit from a warm colour grading.
