The Embrace

Photography is an almost exclusive outdoor pursuit for me but very, very occasionally I feel I should try and learn more about the use of artificial light in a studio setting. This is difficult because I don’t have a studio nor photographic lighting equipment – not even a flash! However, I do have windows with blinds so I can control the entry of natural light into rooms and I also have a desk lamp and a torch on my mobile phone. What more does an aspiring studio photographer need? This image is a result of some experimentation with that set-up. The idea takes some inspiration from the still-life work of Edward Weston (using a pepper as the model) and Robert Mapplethorpe’s nude portraits.
