New Portraits

I have finally got around to adding some of the latest portraits I have been working on. I have used gritty light set ups on most of the shots. The string football image is a conceptualised image brief for what to do in you spare time on your lunch break. I hope you enjoy the shots and any comments are welcome.

Gritty Self Portrait

Recently I have been working on my own gritty light setup. I have looked at many photographers including Dave Hill, Tim Tadder, Joel Grimes, Jill Greenberg and many others who use this look. Below are a couple of self portraits which I took and then spent time post processing in Photoshop. I used a spray bottle to add the fake sweat before shooting but unfortunately I don’t make a very convincing boxer so aim to use proper sports people when I next shoot using this setup. Over all though I love the results so enjoy!
