Safety First

February 25, 2014

I am an advocate for “safety first” and wearing helmets… But let’s accept it, sometimes helmets are just cool.

A couple of weeks back I got quite enthusiastic and started trying some light setups with my ever-patient husband as the model. Of course, being 2am in the morning did not make it easy for either of us (I didn’t mind, but I really should work on my sleep schedule…).

Long story short, busy days, busy weeks have kept me without my model. So desperate times, desperate measures. I am not too fond of self portraits because -well, let’s leave that for some other time- but these I must say I’m growing fond of. Perhaps it’s because you can barely see who’s in there, or (and most probably) because of the cool-factor associated to helmets-EHEM, “safety”.

These images were shot with a one-light setup and in some cases I used some window light as a second light. Had a little bit of a tough time with the reflections because I obviously couldn’t see them on myself while shooting, so I ended up taking the helmet off and shooting it by itself.

Here are my favourite safety related shots, make sure to click on them to enlarge.
