Today’s post is from a Clarence Clottey – Studio session for his latest suits. Similarly to his last session outside his office, he modeled all the outfits that he put together. However, this time we met at my studio in Fairfax. Since it has not been that long since we had a shoot, I could really compare the two sessions. Without a doubt, I really enjoyed the control of the lighting. At this time, I used four lights to capture some nice renderings of the suits, and to make a clean white background.
When he put on the white suit, I thought this would have been troublesome against a white background. He wanted to keep the same background as the dark suits, so we gave it a try. Overall, I think these work especially with his dark skin. He does not get lost in the background with some flags used in the studio to keep the lights from flaring back into the camera. I know this sounds very camera-geeky, but I was very happy with the results!
