Work­ing in Steve’s con­verted stu­dio was re­ally in­ter­est­ing. It was no larger than a typ­i­cal dou­ble bed­room, but by paint­ing the walls white and in­stalling a cou­ple of lights and back­grounds, he was able to pro­duce a whole range of light­ing ef­fects. For the main shot of our model St­effi, right, he showed how you could use one light for your sub­ject and an­other on the back­ground to cre­ate this in­tense and moody look. We also shot some typ­i­cal high-key ‘beauty’ shots, and the ef­fect was com­pletely dif­fer­ent. Steve’s at­ten­tion to de­tail was a sur­prise – I hadn’t re­alised how lit­tle I con­cen­trated on hands, arms and hair, and just how im­por­tant it is to get these de­tails right!
