As I mentioned before in my Swimmer’s Portrait post, the Swimmer was also a runner.
So, Tom returned to do another shoot, this time in his running kit!
With the athlete, I tried to create more poses that represented the person as if running.
So we shot a starters pose,
then a sprinting pose,
and a ‘standing tall pose’ which I think worked really well.
I quite like the ‘Standing tall’ pose, it gives an impression of power or a winning pose. It a tricky shoot to do in my studio, but the results look really good.
I also adjusted some of the processing on some of the, from full colour, to de-satuated & black & white.
Tom was pleased again with his images and may well return with his scuba diving gear!
