I recently put up a casting when I was looking for a model to work with me at The Pit Studio, which is a really interesting natural light studio. I received a number of replies from very suitable models, but one reply was from a model who instantly piqued my interest, the very talented Marmalade.
I think it’s fair to say that her images are a bit different to my normal style, and I’ve seen other photographers and models try something different with varying degrees of success. As the images I produce on a shoot are usually a blend of my style and that of the model I thought we would be able to produce some really creative images, blending my use of composition and light with her posing and expressiveness.
I really enjoyed working with Marmalade and had a brilliant shoot, she’s very creative and hard working, and the time just flew by. We were soon developing ideas and making the most of the super light at The Pit. Now as well as being a great model Marmalade is also a dab hand at processing images, so in this first blog post of images from the shoot I thought I would share some of the images she has worked on, so that you can see her interpretation of what we produced. I really like her use of tones and toning, as I generally don’t experiment that much and just either desaturate the colours a bit, convert to mono, or do a sepia toned image.
There are loads more images to come, as these are from just a few of the many sets that we did.
Thanks for a super shoot Marmalade, and I really like the images you’ve produced, it’ll be interesting to see how they compare when I process some of the images. And an extra thank you for making the really lengthy journey from your home to the studio. We’ve already booked our next shoot, and this time I’ll be travelling down to her home turf and I understand she has some super locations lined up.
