Whitby Goth Festival Photoshoot.
Photographed at Whitby Goth Festival over the halloween weekend. We were shooting at night outside in the dark most of the time. I took an assistant with me who's main job was to shine a torch on my "victims" so I could focus the camera. I had a Bowens flash with a soft box set up and shot everything with the aperture stopped well down so none of the background would register, enabling me to get a portrait against a clean black backdrop.
I couldn't go wrong with the wealth of subject matter, and shot well in to the early hours on both Saturday and Sunday. I like to say a big thanks to everyone who let me take their portrait. Here are some of the results.
