A Shoot in the Lightning Studio.

Something I have wanted to do for a long time was to shoot portraits in the lightning studio at University. I have never been one for shooting film portraits so this was a real learning curve, and I felt a good way to push my creative skills and knowledge.

One big important part of my portraits was the light and how it would be angled to best illuminate the features on the face. I tried many different settings for the lights including changing the colour from bright white to warm white. I was shooting with my Maimya C330 Medium Format Camera with Ilford Pan F+ film at a speed of 50 IOS.

The technical difficulties did come through as I found getting the right exposure and settings quite tricky. The light had to be in the perfect position to get the face illuminated in the right place which took a lot of fiddling with the camera apertures and shutter speeds.

I was really happy with the poses and the way the photos have turned out. These shots are from the film which was scanned into the computer and edited through Photoshop. I am extremely excited to start working with the film in the darkroom.
