I could have shot all day on the balcony of our hotel suite location. The play of light, shadows and vantage point all gave the balcony a magical charm. Instead we started inside with the curtains closed.

01. For our first shot of the session we started with both of our models on set and I closed the curtains to simulate evening light. We used a single Lupo 650 LED spotlight for this shot of Agata standing and Alicia seated. Fujifilm X-Pro2, 23mm lens at f/1.4, 1/60th second with a monopod using ISO 400.

Models: Agata Suduiko and Alicia Endemann
Makeup: Tatiana Medved
Camera: Fujifilm X-Pro2, 16mm, 23mm, 35mm (f/1.4), 56mm and 90mm lenses

02. For this sequence I swapped the LED spotlight for daylight by opening the curtain just a little bit. Fuji X-Pro2, 35mm at f/1.4, 1/60th second with a monopod using ISO 400.

03. This shot was lit with the same glancing daylight as in shot 02 above and the same exposure settings too.

05. The sunlight projected forward leading shadows into the frame and I chose to shoot directly into the sun for maximum effect. Fuji X-Pro2, 23mm lens at f/2.5 for 1/1000th…
