Hi Folks

Just a quick post today as I’m in the middle of getting ready for a busy couple of days with a seminar during the day tomorrow, followed by a concert at the O2 in Londonm then an early start for an all day shoot at the Imperial College in London on Sunday.

So today I thought I’d share another picture from Tuesday’s photo shoot in Crewe with James Elmore and Sarah Chrisp and also give you a look ‘Behind the Scenes’ at the lighting set up.


This wasn’t a planned shot at all but rather one that just happened. I was setting up some lighting on the studio floor and turned to see James and Sarah sat in this exact position in the office/waiting area. So…grabbed some lighting, quickly set it up and job done!

Below is a lighting diagram showing the one light set up for this picture; namely the 175cm Elinchrom Rotalux Octa positioned in such a way as to mimic a large window in the studio…


Here’s a Behind the Scenes photograph taken by Johnathan Clover (Owner of Cloverleaf Studios) showing the set up and environment…


Right that’s all from me so whatever you’re up to, have a fantastic weekend and I’ll catch you back here in a couple of days.
