This is a studio shot of a young lady. It is a 'high key' photography shot. High key meaning high contrast and light (white). It was taken using three lights, two lights had brollies fitted (the light is fired into a white coloured reflective brolly and is thus dispersed evenly). The third light (the key light) was a light fitted with a 'barn door'. Basically a large diffuser, so the light is even and not too harsh, and there are no shadows. The lighting system used was a Courtenay Studio Lighting system. This print was printed on Ilford fibre based photographic paper with a matt finish at the 8" x 10" size.
Hull Community Artworks Studio, Northumberland Avenue, Kingston upon Hull, North Humberside, England, circa 1993-94.
From a Studio Lighting Course (I actually won a box of photographic paper for this print and shot, 100 sheets of Ilford 8" x 10"). The young lady I believe was training to become a teacher.
