There’s an interesting story behind these stairs. It’s the one thing where Damien actually gave us all an assignment and asked us how to best shoot it. Needless to say, I had no idea, partly because I didn’t know what Riona was going to wear and partly because … well, I just didn’t know.
Thankfully, Damien did.
And after Damien set up the Lupo for lighting, and Riona took position on the stairs, that’s when I started to see the possibilities. I saw angles. I love angles. And so I used them to the best of abilities.
The above shot is my favorite, with Riona’s lines complementing the stairs and the railing.
I like the next shot too, with the shadow of the railing. Although the image is missing something, and I’m not too sure exactly what. It’s almost perfect. Perhaps it’s the angle of Riona’s body? Perhaps she could have been angle in the other direction, forming an opposing angle to the railing?
Next are two more photos of that day.
And that’s a wrap for day one. And what an amazing day it was! It was cold and rainy outside, so Damien had to improvise our indoor shoots for this day. He came up with so many different looks that it was a fabulous learning experience.
Day Two brought some interesting looks as well since we were able to work outside. We’ll visit those looks soon!
