Model Shoot with Gabrielle | Wellington Wedding and Portrait Photographer | Kent Photography

Last week we had an opportunity to photo shoot at Mermaid. Courtesy to Mermaid for lending us their venue for this shoot. It was a bit of a tough one to bring all the lighting gear to the place. Our setup was simple with two light sources, a combination of beauty dish and soft box. For this photo shoot, we have used Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4 and 70-200mm f/2.8 VR as our primary set of lens.

Mermaid – our photo shoot venue for the day

Gabrielle our model for the day was a pleasure to work. While we were busy setting up the lighting gear, Veronica our makeup artist was equally busy doing makeup with Gabrielle.

Then it was back to the studio for a quick studio shoot assisting Zian to finish off the day.

A very quick rundown on how we set up the studio lighting for this shoot – A simple beauty dish strobes from the top ~8 ft high and an umbrella off the floor to light up the beautiful dress.

A simple two lights set up but works brilliantly. Behind the scenes of the studio shoot.


Some final images of the studio shoot.
