Gothic fashion shoot by the sea

April 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment


I've just shot a gothic inspired fashion shoot on location in Portsmouth.  The model for this shoot was the amazingly talented Beau Sin (  The weather was terrible but we managed to come away with a very strong set of images.  I've attached a small selection to this post.


I used my Canon 50mm F1.2L for the first time.  I shot wide open and 95% of the images were sharp (some more so than others).  I'd say that the problem with the other 5% was down to user error.  I'm SO pleased I had taken the time to practice with this lens before using it on a live shoot (see previous post).  :)


I shot three different lighting set ups -
