Client: Trail Running
Camera: Canon 6D with 24-70 f/2.8 lens
Another day, another shoot. This time around I was shooting for Trail running magazine and, as always, the weather played its part in events. The autumn weather was unpredictable, so it was important to get the shot in the bag as soon as possible. The urgency was compounded as the magazine was literally about to go to press.
When I'm asked to produce a specific image, I always ask for a brief and, even better, a sketch. This is usually prepared by the art editor, and it can really help as this will help produce an image with enough space on the page for headlines and copy.
As you can see from the image and the quick grab of the magazine in print, there was quite a lot of copy to arrange around our model, Rebecca. As Rebecca is a keen runner, she actually moves at quite a pace so, to aid focusing, I directed her to run parallel to the camera. The model was lit using one off-camera strobe that was modified with the scrim surface of a reflector.
Colours were warmed in post production using Lightroom.
