Recreating a low-key portrait


Dare I confess this took me 9 months to get around to! 🙁

You may remember me asking you this question in a blog post ‘What do you want from me?‘ And Tony ‘Hereward Gas’ replied with a challenge or rather a request to recreate a lovely photograph he had seen (featured image above).

I had a pretty good idea how it was done and finally got to shoot a short video of me recreating it, using my son (no he wasn’t in that dress!)

You’ll obviously need to find your own gorgeous model but the link to the kit is below and I’ve just launched a ‘beginners guide to flash photography’ so that will put you right on the setup.
