Autumn Portraits in and around Teesside

Our research and development team (that’ll be me) have been working hard on new lighting and shooting techniques for my Teesside location portrait sessions.  This shot of Owen was taken this morning in a wooded area on the outskirts of Norton, Stockton on Tees.  I had my sandbags holding down my lighting stands, thanks to Ophelia (the hurricane, not my new assistant).  This new technique makes Owen pop in the panoramic frame. I’ve also got a couple of other new ideas that I’ll be posting over the next couple of weeks.
