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 August 19, 2020). I’m very excited to be previewing the line for you now!
