Shooting Ben – Vida July

I do not shoot for Vida too often, however on this occasion our regular photographer could not make it so I filled in for him.

On our way to the luxury apartment we were going to shoot the photos at, the owner gave us a call to tell us that one of the drains had burst and the place was flooded. He needed to get workmen in immediately so he had to cancel on us.

In a panic we re-convened in the complex’s car park and I offered my home, even though it is currently being re-decorated. The stylist and I had decided to go for a minimalistic look, loosely inspired by Hurts’ “Wonderful Life” video and since my place was being done up we had quite a few bare walls to use.
Thankfully I have a lot of natural light, and only had to fill in with flash in one of the shots. In the rest I shot using my 85mm f 1.8 with the camera mounted on a tripod.
