18 Jan Misha boudoir workshop in Prague

Here are 23 photographs of Misha taken in Prague. I captured these shots with a simple minimalist style using crisp hard light. It’s a lighting style I was taught in the last century at the BBC when I trained as a lighting director. Not much has changed in the past 30 years and this look remains as classic as ever.

01. Inspired by the colour pallete of Edward Hopper, American painter 1882 to 1967 I set my Lupo 1000 LED spotlight to a colour temperature of 3200 Kelvin and set my Fujifilm GFX to a white balance setting of 3600 Kelvin.

02. With the colour tones sorted in camera, creating the black and white conversions in Lightroom is a breeze. I use the Acros G film simulation. The Lupo 1000 spotlight had a Scattergel attached to the barn doors with the integral clips to create the dappled light look.

 

Lighting: Lupo 1000 dual colour spotlight with a Scattergel and a Lupo 650 dual colour LED spotlight.
Camera: Fujifilm GFX50s with a GF 32-64mm zoom lens and a 110mm prime lens on a Novo T20 tripod.

 

03. This change of viewpoint requires my tripod to be at full extension. The tonality and contrast in these images
