Photoshoot - Bruno

Bruno Firmly blaming the Gay Photographers Network (GPN), I recently took the step of buying a lighting kit to be able to do my own studio work at home. The kit includes three lights and ancillary paraphernalia (softboxes, barn doors, umbrellas, trigger, gels). I'll probably have to spend more money on some sort of background. The white sheet I am currently using is not ideal.

This week, after doing a few test on myself and other similarly boring objects, I had my first session with a live model.

Bruno is a fellow photographer I met at the last GPN meeting. During that meeting, I was intrigued by the way the light had been playing with his features, in a way similar to the picture above, so when he mentioned that he'd be willing to let me shoot him, I jump at the opportunity.

Aside from the image above I had another concept in mind for him: wrapping part of my background around his head. I am not totally happy with the result but Bruno's lovely smile makes up for the other deficiencies of those images. After that we just tried a few things without anything particular in mind.

I had a third idea which we didn't get to work on, so expect to see more of him in the future.

The images can be viewed on Flickr, here.
