Kumi Monster 8/6/09


No point in not shooting if a model is available, so we shot some more before taking Kumi to the airport for her flight to London. Again, these were all shot in the home studio.

There are a lot of shots of Kumi with wax on her scalp and I wanted something similarly striking - Strawberry syrup is considerably easier:

The deep end - Kumi Monster 6/6/09


This was my first shoot with a professional model. I'd been encouraged to take my photography to the next level, so this was a test case to see how this all worked in real life. Fortunately Kumi is a really easy to work with and I'm delighted with the results.

All this work was taken at home - either in the studio (living room) using two studio flash heads (soft box and brolly) or in the bedroom with natural light.

This one was taken in the bedroom with natural light.

The majority of the shots were taken with the 50mm lens (and a few using the 35mm and 85mm lenses) on a Canon 5D.
