Twins!

For this shoot I wanted to take some images in central London and of course the most emptiest time to do that is very early in the morning, so with two very willing models we set out to catch the sunrise. The downside of shooting near the river thames is that it is absolutely freezing and so I spent the morning pretending I was on a beach somewhere but for the twins and my assistant it was a cold day at the north pole. 

In the end we managed to get the shots we needed before heading back to the warmth for the final set-up of the day. Here are some of the shots:

For the second part of the shoot I had enlisted the help of my dad to put together a wooden background a few days prior to the shoot as I felt it would work nicely with both models skin tones. After the first few shots I could see that the wood was a great choice and that it worked well.

I used three lights on this set-up a large octabank as my main light slightly feathered, a small soft box as my side light and another small soft box as my fill light. Setting up the lights in this way created some very interesting highlights and shadows and I got the images I needed to add to my portfolio.
