Shooting for Portfolio & Pleasure

Posted on Posted in Commercial Photography, On Location, Product photography

Sometimes I get an idea pop into my head for a shot. I’ll be honest, most of the time that’s where they will stay.
I don’t have a great deal of time to indulge myself as far as photography is concerned, normally too busy shooting for clients or relaxing.

As it was a stunning day today in Wales, I thought I better take advantage of the fact and headed the beach at Ogmore with my kit and my son.
The idea I had was a walking boot splashing in a rock pool as if worn by an invisible person. I thought this would sit great in my portfolio.

I have to admit the shoot went very well, my son did an excellent job of splashing my wife’s Hoggs of Fife walking boot into the pool and holding the laces.
I lit the shot with natural light, of which there as plenty and filled in with a silver reflector.

For those settings fans out there ISO100 F3.5 1/1250sec
