The problem a refurbished flat, with plenty of space that just isn’t getting potential renters through the door to look. The idea is to break out of the mould of sterile pictures, and try to add some aspirational zing to the advertising.
Jessica very kindly offered to do the shoot on a TFP/CD basis to build up her portfolio, with a view to getting pro modelling and film extra work. I think that the results were worthwhile — have a look at the studio shots in my portrait folder as well — the sepia head shot makes a wonderful canvas. Jessica was a joy to work with, and made my job much easier. Life as a photographer is so much better when the subject also wants to look good.
Equipment: Canon 5D, 70-200 f4 L, Elinchrom D-Lite 2 Go, Chinese wireless flash trigger, shooting tethered to the MacBook Air. Shooting tethered allowed Jessica to get a feel for how the shots were coming out, and, seeing that helped her to work with me to improve the results.
