Join Mark in the studio for this real family shoot with one of his returning clients who have come for new photos following the birth of their second child.
In this film we join Mark for a full family session in the studio, demonstrating the interaction, posing, lighting and variety that Mark brings to every shoot to create not only the highly sellable and popular Hi-key images but also that creative and different image that deliveries beyond the clients expectations. In this second part we focus on creating the variety by adding more dynamic lighting and the more creative style of image. Mark uses two main styles to achieve this, firstly by swapping to a low key lighting set-up for strong black & white images with both baby and parents in an implied nude style. Then Mark goes to a more playful style with Jack and his Dad, initially in the same low-key but then moving on to silhouettes on a deep blue. The final style of image is also on the Blue but with the new Baby in a fun outfit that his mother had brought to be used.
