Here’s a recent shot of Emma Starmore Smith from a recent shoot. This shot of Emma Starmore Smith was taken in Rhyl and a studio. The original brief had a number of elements to it, the first being a beauty shoot using the classic clamshell setup. We also threw a background light in to get Emma Starmore Smith’s hair highlighted at the edges which worked really well.
There’s some more info on Emma Starmore Smith’s shoot on this blog post which you can find here.
Emma Starmore Smith Video
Here’s a video of the studio we used for the shoot with Emma Starmore Smith. This was at the start so not all set up. We used a couple of locations with the shoot being in several parts. The second element was based at the table.
Emma Starmore Smith Portrait Image
The original image of Emma Starmore Smith was taken in portrait, but as we used a black background it makes it very easy to simply enlarge the canvas size behind Emma and turn her portrait into a landscape picture. Landscape pictures lend themselves to beauty adverts, especially in conventional media.
Emma Starmore Smith Photoshoot
Here’s the setup we used for Emma Starmore Smith’s shoot. This section was the beauty section. In the video, above you can see the commercial part with did for Mitchells Laboratory Notebooks, which had a slightly simpler lighting solution. The camera I was trying out the Canon R5 for the first time. I’d not used a mirrorless camera of that pedigree before and to be honest it was amazing. The quality of the shots was very high. The lens, my 24-105 f4 series which I got with my 5d mkii, it’s so diverse and as you can fudge and depth of field in photoshop all you’re really worried about is how sharp the original image is. As you can see, the photo of Emma Starmore Smith is pin sharp and 50 mega pixels which leaves a lot of scope for editing. You can see more of Emma’s work on her own website here.

Emma’s got a Bean flat white and if you’ve been there you can tell it’s the coffee shop. These contextual shots are perfect for social media, be it Instagram or as a shot for writing a blog post on drinking coffee after running. The possibilities are endless and allows social media managers to be really flexible with the content going out to the public.
