Using props that you normally won’t
Using props can really propel a photoshoot from ok to more interesting or even wow.
A few weeks ago I got the request from a model to shoot a series with tires, a bit of a sporting type of shoot.
We called a local tire supplier and offered him some prints in exchange for lending us some tires, and the term “You get some cool fitness model shots on your tires” seems to work wonders all the time (although this was the first time we actually asked for tires, but you know what I mean right?)
Now what do you do with tires?
You can of course just place them in top of each other but you can also try to be a bit more creative.
Today some of the shots we took during last week with the tires, as you can see I used them in various settings during the shoot with the fitness model but also during workshops.
Models : Roosmarijn and Nadine
Very nice shots. I love the lighting, and I like how in some images the smoke looks like clouds backlit by the sun. Can you share your lighting setup for these?
I used one backlight and one mainlight, and in some shots some accents.
