When my sister Renee (Ideity of Art by Ideity) visited to attend Jamrock Caribbean Festival, we did a shoot the day prior. In the spirit of Zebra Retro last year, we wanted to do something somewhat wild and interesting. She wore an amazing yellow lip colour and feather eyelashes. She experimented with makeup, her passion, and I experimented with light.
Available light means I use what is available. However, I didn't want what was "available" to be the usual. We shot in a parking garage and then near a dim corporate building, using light that I normally do not use. I am a sun, indoor lighting or Speedlite kinda girl. I really like the photographs below. There are a few more in an album on Facebook. All of the photographs were made at night. I rarely photograph at night, but this was fun.
I like the yellow of the garage's curb connecting to her lip colour.
Love the lights! I've never used garage lights or even photographed in a parking garage so it was a lot of fun. There are A LOT of lights of different sizes and intensities and I think it makes it interesting.
I love her expression and head tilt.
There was some sort of a metal door on a 45 degree angle in the stairwell so it became a prop.
I love this one. Love. I like the crazy patterns of the light and the lack of light in certain areas. It's definitely something I want to practice and perfect, but I think I did alright for a first try for this type of portrait at night. I have not photographed at night since an event in California last year.
There's also some behind the scenes video that I will blog in the next couple of days.
I love our collaborations. We always have fun. I look forward to our future collabs, and feel nothing but joy about past Art by Ideity and Tru Shots Photography collaborations.
