Classic Hollywood lighting portrait session

 

At this time of the year I am often itching to take photos sometimes; I have weddings but not as many as the busy season. So to keep me clicking away I often do a shout out on Facebook to see if anyone wants to play.

My good buddy Steph came up with the great of trying to create the classic Hollywood portraits of old. Often shot with 3 strong lights with hard shadows; we had two models both fitting the look and away we went about trying to get the Catherine Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe pics of yesteryear.

Below are a few of my favourite pics from the shoot, as you will see I soon fell off the wagon and started getting shots in my own style. It’s tough to try and copy the style of others.
