Studio in The Street: Kat

Now here’s something we haven’t done in a while – take our two Bowens 400 heads and battery pack out onto the streets of Birmingham Jewellery Quarter on a Summer’s evening. The “Studio in the street” workshop started off in the relatively shaded narrow alleys of the area (it was still quite sunny, even after 7:30pm)…

Once the light levels began to drop, we headed into wider streets, doorways and under bridges…

Our model for the evening was Kat (Kathryn Victoria), a favourite at Fotofilia for several years now. Kit-wise, the battery pack doesn’t get used very often but it never fails to surprise me how well the charge lasts: with five photographers shooting for 2 and a half hours, often with two flashes, the battery was depleted by only 25% by the end of the event. And to think I bought a second battery – it’s never been out of the box.

    • Thanks Jeff! Yeah, its great to have her back – I ask her regularly but it’s hard for her to fit modelling in around her teaching and family nowadays.

    Great pictures, David and a fantastic shoot you took us on – I really enjoyed it! Kat was, as always, an absolute joy to work with too.
