Hasselblad/ Broncolor/ Advanced Photographer magazine shoot

November 06, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Again, still a little behind with the blog, but have to mention the shoot I took part in in London back in August this year.  I entered into a competition set up by the Advanced Photographer magazine.  I had to enter 3 portrait images linked by a theme, so I uploaded 3 recent 'dance themed' portraits and crossed my fingers.  I wasn't really expecting to get thru esp. as I had been lucky enough to be chosen for a similar competition last year.  So I was ridiculously excited when Will Cheung, the magazines editor emailed me inviting me to shoot in London.

The prize was a shoot at the Hasselblad studios in London, getting to use the Hasselblad H5d to shoot with !!! ( I know) and topping of the experience up by using the broncolor lights at the studio.

I met up with 5 other lucky photographers at the studio, after staying the night at a local easy hotel.com ( actually wasn't too bad, cheap .... and orange!)  We had a history lesson on Hasselblad, and then a technical talk from the bron color lighting experts.  We then got to work with two lovely models to try and get the covershot for the magazine.  Only the catch was we wouldn't get too see or edit our images, they were going straight off the back of camera to be looked at by the Advanced Photographer team, who would pick a winner.

 

Unfortunatly I didn't get the cover shot, but I had a blast on the day and LOVED using the Hasselblad camera, and really really want the chance to use one again ! I've now been spoilt.

Once the magazine featuring the article on us was out we were sent a disc containing the images we had taken, to look at and edit for our own portfolios.  The files were ENORMOUS but the clarity and detail was amazing.

Here are some of my edits
