Testing with Tom

This week I met up with my friend, juggler, actor, model, comedian and all round good-guy Tom Gaskin to help him film some new material for his 2018 show reel. In between takes we were messing around with some new lighting kit I've picked up. 


I send most of my time shooting ambient, environmental portraits, and when I do use flash it's usually just to add a little definition to whatever the ambient is doing. 

That being said I really enjoy the occasional splurge of absolute artificiality. On camera flash (or close to it) big vignettes in post-production and excessive desaturation always make me feel like I'm shooting a magazine cover. Chance would be a fine thing. 


Of course, the one quick ambient snap i took at the end of the day is, as always, my favourite.
