Joey L, who is widely known for his both compelling photos of quickly-vanishing lifestyles and visually engaging advertising work, recently put together a very informative BTS post on his blog which goes into detail about his lighting setups and approach to working with female models. Joey admits that while he does not regularly work with female models, he feels confident with his skills in that department, but it is important for clients to be able to see this as well. As a result, Joey arranged this personal shoot in his apartment and goes over every juicy detail with us.
Joey touches base on everything from arranging the shoot, to his gear choices for each shot, lighting each shot for photography and videography (including handy lighting diagrams), and interacting with the model. He also briefly speaks about retouching, and mentions that Fstoppers' very own Pratik Naik retouched the shots. Nice work, Pratik!
I've attached a few of the photos to this post, but to see the entirety of Joey's post, you can head over to his blog here. And if you haven't, I highly suggest taking 30 minutes or so to check out his personal work, which is nothing short of stunning.
