Say hello to Pinky the Model 🙂 It was a shoot that took some time ago and well it was unconventional fun 🙂
Why it was different? Well, lets start from beginning. Here is the list of people that took part in this shoot:
The whole thing was done in the university hall’s kitchen. Yes, kitchen. We used a bedsheet taped over the wall with gaffer tape. Below is lighting diagram that will explain simple lighting.
As you can see it was simple. One light (SB-900) in portable softbox, close to the model. Model was very close to the background, because bedsheet was not long enough to stretch on the floor. Also, thats why you have a harsh shadow on the wall. We were thinking about shooting outside, but it was raining all the time, on and off, so we didn’t want to risk it. And it did rain on the day :/ Also, I was as far as I could manage within the room. Thats why the camera (D3s + 50mm and 85mm) is so far away on the diagram.
Also, the final feel of the image was supposed to be vintage, old, grainy. I used photoshop to create vignettes, grain, color offsets and tints etc. The final touch on some of the images was fake depth of field. It was simply a mask with lens blur applied to it. This gave a bit of edge to the images. It was fun to shoot and edit the images. Especially, when you have such a great team. 🙂
