One of my favourite things about being a photographer is all of the different people and spaces I get to meet and work with. Each job, whether it be for money or pleasure, is a challenge. I sometimes forget how new I am to all of this (even though sometimes I feel quite seasoned) and how much I actually learn every time I shoot.
This week I went through some of my very old archives to pick our some past client work to share on my website (you can view them here if you would like) and it made me realise how much I have grown in a very short amount of time, but it also reminded me how much I have to learn. I'm constantly criticising my own work which is something that my time at VCA taught me. Even when I reviewed the majority of these images earlier today I was picking out things I need to improve on and things that I need to learn more about!
I'm so excited to share these images with you because I don't often get to work in a studio environment. This studio was quite different to your usual set up. There were no lights for me to work with, so I used a combination of natural lighting and my speedlite. I always prefer natural lighting over artificial, but sometimes playing around with lights can be a lot of fun. It was challenging choosing when to use my flash and when to hold back in favour for the beautiful soft light floating through the large windows! I love working in the city and with extremely talented designers.
I'd love to know what kind of lighting you like working with best! Let me know in the comments below!
