Help with my project please
Aug 17, 2012


Don't know if this is the right forum so if not I apologise.

I have been given a project and my twist to that project is taking photographs of a model as if in the 1950/60s (Black and White): I have the model which I know and should make it a bit easier for my first time photographing someone other than family, she is not a professional, an indoor setting and some props etc, it's just the lighting that I am really worried about.

Now I could make life easy and not go this far but I want to try and learn and do something different for me. After all if you don't stretch yourself how do you learn.

I want to know if you can still take good indoor photographs with a retro feel without all the fancy lighting. I hope on the day there will be good natural light from a large window and lighting from table lamps and over head lights. I have a reflector disc which can be silver, white, gold or black. Can any of you give me some constructive advice and if there is a way of perhaps utilising other lighting which I might not have thought about.

I look forward to your reply's.
