If you have looked around my portfolio you will see that I mainly shoot models one at a time, but occasionally I like the challenge of shooting a group. Last Sunday’s shoot was one such occasion.

I had met Stacey a couple of years ago and when she posted on Facebook that she wanted to update her profile and try a few things we met up and set up a time. She then recruited two friends to come along.

Now Stacey is very confident in front of the camera, her friend were not, and in fact Kari told me that she hated most pictures that were taken of her. That certainly presented a challenge but by the end of the evening I think I had not only risen to the challenge but had overcome it.

The shoot took place in a studio in Upper Hutt with the main lighting coming from my Westcott 7 foot parabolic umbrella. The more I use this light the more that I love it.

Stacey wanted some low light silhouettes so we started with those.

We moved a leather couch onto the set and used that. Kari (rear) quite liked this set up as she could effectively hide.

The girls outfits immediately brought to mind the old cartoons with the angel and demon conscious.
