I was once again given the opportunity to shoot alongside Ainslie Bernoth from Wild Spirit Photography last Thursday where we were shooting a session for Jodie and her gorgeous family. Jodie was an attendee from the first Fusion workshop that I held and was one of the cinematographers for the gorgeous video of Ashton & Savannah that we did during the workshop.
Ainslie had three amazing setups for us, and it goes to show just how amazing your shoots can look when you add some color! From gorgeous multi-colored drapes that hung over the bed to the brilliantly colored cupcakes, the props really add to the vibrancy of the shoot. Even the container that they bathed their dog in was bright green which looked fantastic, even though it had a huge hole in it and ended up leaking water all over the floor!
On this shoot I was using my new pocket slider which was a lot quicker in setting up than my 3m long wally dolly. It meant I could set up very quickly and keep shooting – in shooting fusion anything you can do to save time helps! Other than that I had one small portable, battery driven LED light to punch a bit of light into the shadows, other than that it was lit with ambient light and shot at ISO 1250. Admittedly I would have preferred to use the light from the modelling light, however the one used for the bedroom shoot wasn’t working and shooting downstairs was tricky with the strong halogen lights.
