Weekly Portraits Leica SL: A Casual Test Shoot With Tiffany:
This week’s portrait set post is of Tiffany. We decided to meet up after she came back from a trip overseas, and see what we could get in terms of photos. I think we were both kind of out of it; I’ve been busy with a lot of work recently, and she was a bit jet lagged. Still, it was a good day to test with the old Leica, which is what we did.
You can always count on Tiffany to bring a bunch of different outfits, which is good because we have the flexibility to try a lot of different things to see what works and what doesn’t. As for me, I had this new room I wanted to try, and I also wanted to just do a some experimenting with strobes. It was a little tight in the room but I managed to squeeze in a strobe and an octabox. The camera I was using was my Leica SL, and the lens was the Summilux-SL 50mm F1.4 ASPH.
So, this is what we ended up with; it’s a smaller post this time because I’ve been really busy, and I haven’t had the time to edit anymore. It’s funny because we had such a great game plan before the shoot, and once we met each other, we were like ehhh…lol. I don’t think either of us were really in the mood or had the full energy to commit to a serious shoot at the time :). But it’s always great to just catch up with Tiffany. She’s super talented, so even on our days when we’re not in it full force, we always manage to get something.
As for edits, I kept it simple; just clean edits I did in Camera Raw. Nothing too dramatic or filter-like. I did some retouching of skin in Photoshop. That’s about it.
Nearly all my content on my Instagram page, and Leica posts here have been with the Summilux-SL 50mm. I love this lens, and the focal length but I’ve been wanting to change things up a bit. I’m going to make a bigger effort to shoot more with my APO-Summicron-SL 90mm f2 ASPH. There are times when I have the space to shoot with the 90mm but I’m always so comfortable with the 50mm :). Anyway, as always, thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for more content coming very soon.
