Experiments in Light | Colour | Form Photography with MODEL KUN NICKKO VOL. 15 @ Tekumi Studios

Updated: Mar 2

After a little hiatus over the holidays we got right back into it in the new year with back to back studio shoots.

I'm going to keep this one a bit short and let the BTS video wonderfully captured by Andy @andwack do the talking. I also breakdown the studio lighting how to below so keep reading!

For this shoot, the inspiration was definitely glitzy, glamy, retro and disco 💃🪩 I strung up some shiny silver balls that I had ordered from Temu and to be honest what I had in mind and what I actually received was a bit different. They looked much larger in the online photos so the impact of the hanging silver balls was a bit less muted for my taste but setting them in hanging from the ceiling at various distance from the camera added a nice little sense of depth to the photos.

We had the talented and expressive Nickko @kunnickko gracing us with her modeling so a big thanks to her.

The setup was as follows:

  • Main Light = Godox AD300 with a silver beauty dish with diffusion set in the center-right of the model.

  • Fill Light = Godox V860III speedlight set to the left side of the model.

  • Background Light = Godox V860III with pink gel on the white background + Amaran P60x set to orange / pink hue.

  • Fog machine (of course!)

  • Sony A7IV + Sony 24-70 GM II

  • Cross star filter + Black Mist Pro 1/4

  • Whole lot of sas from the model to get those killer poses!
