I wanted to try and get images with a slightly less of a standard studio feel.
I originally thought I would shoot these images to be black and white, but when processing the files in Photoshop I found colour version to work better.
The background stood out a bit too much when processed in black and white, even using a wide aperture of f2.2 to try and blur the background more.
I used the Godox system, of the Godox AD600 battery powered strobe as the main light (beauty dish) and 2 Godox V860 II-S, this allowed me to use High Speed Sync (HSS), a faster shutter speed and wider aperture.
Using simple outfits and a combination of the lighting above I was very pleased with the outcome (shown below).
