Though we often shoot business and professional portraits, we also dabble in fashion when we get the opportunity, which means more room to play with colours, shapes, and textures. In this instance, we shot this lovely lady against our vivid lavender, which our brightest pastel that looks stunning against tan skin. Don't have a tan? — that's not a problem! With a couple clicks we can create a rich and even golden hue. Alternatively, we can also make your skin tone light and brighter. Let us know what your heart desires and we'll do our best to create that in the most natural way for you.
Welcome our latest backdrop addition—nutmeg! Not just a spicy addition to your winter drinks, nutmeg has a nice warm and darker base than our ever so popular beige. Highly recommended for portrait, fashion, or just something a little different for whatever your need. We recommend going wit ha neutral colour palette when shooting against it and avoiding busy patterns and too much colour.
We are experts when it comes to taking clean, professional, and eye catching photography.
Whether you are looking to for a simple portrait, have ambitions to become a model, or simply want a fashion portrait, don't hesitate to let us know! We can help suggest what background suits your purpose better.
For this portrait session, our subject had warm tones in her skin and hair, so we therefore suggested using a beige background as opposed to a cooler grey or blue background.
Throwback to a funky summer themed lookbook we shot in the wintertime in the studio.
Amna is a Pakistani designer who was preparing for her spring/summer 2018 collection launch.
With about 20 different dresses to capture, we aimed to create as much variation as possible so that she could use the photos overtime on her social media. She was only in town for a few weeks, so we were fortunate enough to have had the chance to work with such professional and talented young lady. I could say the same for her, as she had originally contacted us in a panic having had another photographer cancel their shoot last minute!
All the best of success back home Amna!
Here's a recent fashion portrait we shot on a squeaky clean white backdrop. Lighting the subject form the back,, we added depth and intrigue to the image with lighting set up behind her to emphasize her cheekbones. Wearing just a tube top, we were able to create a fresh and clean silhouette reminiscent of beauty campaigns. This is a great lighting set up for commercial gigs for beauty or jewellery lines.
We can accommodate many lighting styles. Feel free to pass along any images via email that depicts what you had in mind.
Throwback to our experimental phase whereby we tried every colour under the sun, all in effort to learn which were suitable depending on the intention set. Purple was an interesting avenue for us to explore as we had the initial suspicion that it wasn't useful as a background option. As it turns out, our suspicions about purple were correct to some degree. Cooler toned shades will always appear colder at first impression than warmer shades! So simply put, if we want to shoot against purple, we can, and it will look great provided that we consider the tint of the colour is favouring warmth.
Throwback to using this stunning fashion portrait we took in the fall. This shimmery blouse really lit up on camera, and created some interesting effects. We enhanced the textural element by converting the image to black and white.
Throwback to the golden days of shooting in the studio everyday when it was winter!
Here's a cool portrait of Taylor, shot with a cool toned background and icy pale skin editing style. One thing that's interesting to notice is portraits can either be tined warm or tinted cool. Psycholoigally speaking, warm toned portraits are more received well through peoples eyes, with cooler toned images feeling more brash, yet more artistic. If you are simply looking to get a friendly portrait, warm works wonders on everyone's skin.
