Maternity - Charlotte in the Studio Part 3
Learn how to shoot beautiful maternity portraits in the studio. We join Mark in the studio to observe as he guides you through how he shoots a full maternity session with our wonderful model Charlotte. Starting with the basics and then gradually building the session to finish with the creative twist that will really make your sessions stand out from the crowd.
In this next part of the session Mark work with a beautiful dress the client has brought with her, using a complimentary colour background to shoot a wide variety of shots by simply varying the lighting. Initially Mark starts with a simple, soft, vintage look to compliment the dress and the simple styling of the client’s accessories. Then Mark starts to bring the images down to a darker, deeper feel before really adding a dramatic twist with hard, controlled light to bring real impact to the sequence.
