Lifestyle Portraits AKA Holiday Snaps!

Repetition alert! Yes this is a sister post to one on my general website! though this is focussed towards portrait photography. Yes we did it, we got to Madrid! Originally we’d planned to leave Exeter and go at Christmas but Omicron hit the country and it didn’t seem wise. But as we were [...]

Relaxed Headshot Portraits

It's a while since I've done the weekend-morning dining-room session; so here's one. There's more than one way to skin a cat but fortunately we don't have a cat, some visit the house but normally sit outside, just staring. Most of the headshot photography that I do is in the studio, shot with [...]

Relaxed Headshots in Exeter Studio

There is a story! Giles visited the studio in need of a set images to be shot to an existing house style, but he also had need to update his own profile pictures. I think we both agreed that the house-style shots weren't what we might have chosen to do given a free hand but [...]

Portrait photography – Lens Choice

My product photography client got delayed so I thought I'd see how the 105 Micro lens works as a portrait lens. I'd also been meaning to try Translum diffusion on the beauty dish rather than the shower-cap that came with it for a while. For a long time I used the 70-200 ƒ/2.8 for all [...]

Photography Studio: New Ways of Working

I don't know if regular visitors to the studio would notice the change but it is constantly developing. This weekend a ridiculous amount of excitement was had as a result of the arrival of a small, inexpensive steamer (good-part alert) that will also make a cup of tea! As well as the paper [...]

Black and White or Colour Headshots

Olivia visited the Devon Headshot studio recently in Southernhay, Exeter, and it was a fabulous session. This was an extended session where we allowed ourselves the time to explore a few ideas. Nowadays most digital shots start as a colour file; I seriously considered a Leica Monochrom but, it is seriously expensive! So files need [...]

A Busy Weekend at the Exeter Photography Studio

I've been spending a lot of time recently looking at our kitchen, I'm sure we can fix what's there rather than spend a fortune on a new one, I stand there, just looking at it and working out in my head what might happen. Recently I acquired the complete stock of a working photographic studio [...]

Testing the Bowens Octo 90 with Malu

This was a slightly unusual headshot session, Malu visited our Exeter photography studio at the weekend for a headshot portrait but we agreed that I would use the session to test my new Bowens Octo 90 lighting modifier. Bowens Octo 90 To the uninitiated the Octo probably looks like a brolly but the strobe head [...]
