Kelvin Mesmin Shoot

Kelvin Mesmin

First image from a portfolio shoot with model Kelvin Mesmin. I found that to accentuate form when shooting the body, bring the lights further off center. This creates better play of light and shadow rather than a flat light. (In landscape terms this would be the difference between the soft long shadows of late afternoon light compared to the hard short shadows of midday.)

    A lot of old carvings (exactly how old is still up to debate) on rock-faces around here have been photographed using a similar technique with lights just slightly off the surface, accentuating any irregularity. This way nearly faded runes have been dechiffered, and old interpretations been debunked!
