The shoot was the commonly faced challenge - make an office look interesting. But I like a challenge! I soon found an interesting backdrop in the form of a white wall intersected with a dark blue streak: the perfect place to frame my subjects. With a couple of lights (one bouncing off the white wall behind me as a fill and a softbox as the main) I turned the rather stark office lighting into something a bit more dramatic. All that was left then was to have a good old chat with Mike and Paola and find out all about them whilst gently coaxing some different expressions out of them.
The second set of images were much easier - embracing the wonderful sun made finding nice light on the roof terrace much easier. It was a gorgeous, but cold day, so I kept the roof terrace session quick and fun. Moving Mike and Paola around a bit to get some different looks and finding my best angles.
A big thanks to them both for being so great in front of my lens.
