Model - Nicole
Year Taken - March 2014
Camera - Sony A7R
Lens - Carl Zeiss 85mm f/1.4
Location - Studio
Decided today to do some low ISO work with the new Sony A7R. So far, all the stuff Ive done has been at ISO 3200 and above, so I wondered just how sharp and contrasty the camera would be with the Zeiss lenses at lower ISO’s. Throwing in a bit of studio light as fill, but also using natural light as the main source, I managed to get these images.
So this is Nicole. She is only just 18 years old and this was her first ever photoshoot. Normally, when you work with someone on their first shoot, its a disaster. They have no idea on how to look natural and the images are clunky and awkward. This was NOT the case with young Nicole.
She is a lovely girl. Incredibly small (5ft 2ins or about 1 meter in foreign :)) and she does look very young. However, her modelling is first class. I wanted her to look natural, candid, and this is the hardest kind of modelling for anyone. She is such a pretty girl, and great fun to work with. She has a cute, fresh look that you don’t find too often in models and only normally see in girls who don’t model. She was relaxed, funny and seemed to lose herself to thought which was great for the type of images I like to capture.
Great big window above Nicole and a soft box, head height, 4 feet away to the left.
