27 Jun Brugge ~ street portraits

Source: Pro Photo Nut

It was a a chilly couple of days in April when I visited the beautiful city of Brugge. I ran two one day workshops showing how I make the world my studio, utilising the city environment as creative backgrounds for portraits. We were blessed with all kinds of weather and this gave everyone a really great learning experience as a result.

Camera: Fuji X-Pro2 with the 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom and the 50-140mm f/2.8 zoom
Models: Rosalinde Kikstra and Larissa de Castro.
Logistics: Ioannis Tsouloulis

01. Top left: Larissa under cover in the brewery yard lit with a single Cactus RF60 off camera rigged on a lighting stand using this flash bracket. All the other pictures were taken with natural light. As it was raining at the start of each day I showed how to find great natural light and how to use the Cactus flash system.

02. Rosalinde in the brewery lit with available light. We were offered the chance to use the old brewery museum as a shoot location as the rain came down but after a couple of frames we made our way out onto the streets.

03. We attracted quite a bit of attention and Rosalinde gained a new admirer. The shot at the top utilises the natural light to give a classic 3 point lighting style. The shot bottom right uses the Cactus RF60 again.

04. This is the same location as the top picture in shot 3 above.

05. Every city has it’s creative modern architecture and Brugge is no exception.
