Crafting Editorial Portraits with Jai Mayhew
An editorial portrait is one that tells a story. The story of who your client is yes, but also the narrative that you’re creating about her. Are you going to portray your client as sensual? As a queen? Is she soft and romantic or strong and edgy? Your lighting, color palette, styling and camera angle – all of it works together to tell your story. Today I want to focus on how I use lighting and styling to craft editorial portraits.
These images we’ll be reviewing were shot in March for my Ad Campaign video shoot.
While storyboarding the shoot, I knew two things – that I wanted to show variety in my concepts, and that I was going to feature several of the backdrops from my new Luxe Collection for Intuition Backdrops (coming Summer 2020). I’m very excited to be previewing the line for you now!
