RB67 film portraits

I was in the studio today using the Mamiya RB67 medium format film camera. I’m a digital boy at heart but have to admit I was impressed by this hefty chunk of metal, the images it produced were fairly sharp and I think with a digital back you could get some pretty impressive results with this camera. For the portraits I used a two light setup with Beauty dish to the front above the subject and a snooted light to the rear a stop down to create the spotlight. Here are a couple of my favourite images below.  Remember to click for a bigger image Enjoy!

Quick Portrait

Today I was asked to take a quick portrait of one of the lecturer’s in my building. The image below is of Manya in the Print Room. It was shot using one flash head and on a wide-angle lens. Enjoy!

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!
