Another fun commission I took on mid last December was to do some headshots for an actress friend of a friend.
This is the lovely Annabel Riley!
She’s of quality acting stock, and is sister to Sam Riley, the brilliant lead in Anton Corbijn’s ‘Control’ about the punk band Joy Division
She also resembles the beautiful Keira Knightley!
We did the shoot at NDP studios in Armley, near where I live, and it was lots of fun playing with studio flashes
I don’t do a vast amount of studio modelly work, so it’s always an entertaining challenge.Towards the end I started playing with exposure to darken down the white backgroundAnd we even used some of the fake texture backgrounds for a different look.
Model and actor’s headshots aren’t something I do often, but I do enjoy getting outside my comfort zone doing this kind of thing.
