Window Light Series: Lorena Gabriela

For my latest series I decided to go with a bit of Occam's Razor, you know that which works simplest is sometimes that which works best. I quite often see photographers talking about all of the expensive gear that they have and showing off their high end studio spaces and this moved me to thought. Photography is less about the cost of the tools you have; camera, light, studios etc and more about your knowledge, skill and creativity on how to use those tools. Our biggest tool as photographers is light and one of the essential things is having an understanding of light, its behavior and how best to use it.
I wanted to do a set of portraits using as simple a set up as possible. On Amazon I bought the Fancierstudio Muslin backdrop Muslin Background  which was really cheap at $12.99. I had a good laugh  when it arrived because it was pretty much a tie dyed bed sheet, but hey you get what you pay for. So with a tie dyed sheet, some push pins and a big window, I was set to create some art. I contacted my friend and amazing model Nine Lorena Gabriela, she came over and we shot for about an hour. In keeping with my keeping it simple thought process I also did not spend a whole lot of time doing post work. For each image I spent about 30 minutes tops. I will be continuing this series so stay tuned and more than likely I will do a video on the post work. Feel free to message me if you have any questions and enjoy.
