So, after the studio workshop with Magnus & Magnus last week, we got an assignment that will be presented tomorrow. We were to take a picture taken in a studio/with a flash and try to imitate the lighting.

So this tuesday that has passed, me and Jenny booked the studio in school and photographed each other (I will show her picture of me later). I found a picture on flickr, amongst my contacts, that I like for a lot of reasons. It has the colortones that I like and try to use myself, also it’s not the ordinary, just superbright and sharp studio lighting, I don’t like that, and it’s shot with a low aperture setting. This is the picture. (great photographer btw!) And this is my picture:

Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 in the studio, using a black background and a beauty dish placed almost completely infront of her, and a bit above her. I used the modeling light only.

She is btw a lovely person, a strong woman (she quit her work she studied for 5 years to get, to try out becoming a photographer!) and a nice classmate.

Check out her flickr here:
