01. Carla wears a Bardot skater dress by BooHoo. She is lit with a Lupo 1000 fresnel spotlight. Notice the crisp hard shadow under her chin. Beautiful hard light is the currency of cinematic imagery.

02. I mixed daylight, spotlight and room lights taking control of all of them.

I do all my Boudoir, Hollywood Glamour and Lovegrove Nudes teaching on a 1 to 1 basis now. That way my clients can fine-tune the genre they want to shoot, select their model from our list,  and choose the location from our venue shortlist. My client for this job flew in from Kuwait and he shot with a Nikon D850 with the 24-70mm zoom and the 85mm f/1.4 prime lenses. He owns a pair of Lupo fresnel lights so I chose to use the Lupos too. The fine setting of the lighting was the key element we concentrated on. I helped my client set up his Nikon with custom picture style settings and once we were calibrated we got underway with the shoot. We got all the looks that we wanted in-camera.
