Sophie Laugher (Test Shoot)

Capturing Movement in Portraits

Model Sophie Laugher joined me in Cheltenham to create some beautiful portraits with a sense of movement to them. Having shot so many dance photography sessions I was keen to see how I could merge some dance photography ideas with fashion photography.

I used some slow shutter speeds (shutter drag) to capture the movement of the model moving from one pose to another. We also used rear curtain sync to freeze a final position with flash so that we overlayed a clear portrait over motion blur.

Lastly we used a high shutter speed to freeze fast movement.
