I met Sian at her home in Bexleyheath, Kent in order to take some very unique looking portraits. We tried out some night photography, using a combination of fairy lights and sparklers to light the scene and subject.
This poses a different set of challenges than I normally encounter and shooting at night whether its photography or videography is always a challenge. You have to get the camera setting spot on, get your angle right and shoot in a way that you can bring the photo to life in the editing room.
Using props such as sparklers meant that we had to work quickly to maximise the effect- with only a 60 sec burn time we had to pre-plan the poses and movements so that it was a well co-ordinated dance of model and photographer to get the desired effect.
It all worked out great though and the shots ended up looking awesome! Its something I would definitely like to do more of in the future as it gives you some looks and effects that are different from the normal portrait style photography that we do day to day.
