Studio Photography – Hands
Hands are not the easiest things to shoot – in terms of composition and lighting. In my experience hand models, of which there are many have the Patience of Job! It’s a pre requisite to hold a product or position for as long as it takes to light. Some times in quite challenging positions for quite awhile.
These are a selection of hand shots over the years. One that may need some explanation is the three hand image above. Used for press and as a 64 sheet poster for Platignum, the models were stacked on one another’s laps in order to get the shot in camera.
Another that may need some explanation is the condom image below. Shot for an editorial feature for an article on contraception and family planning.
