This is a style I use a lot. It’s really versatile and can easily be replicated pretty much anywhere with some decent natural light. I like quite a dramatic finish as in shots 3 and 4, where I have ‘cross-processed’ the finished shot with paper textures to emulate an old medium format style inspired by Paolo Roversi. I would love to shoot a really style orientated story out here using this technique. I can set this ‘studio’ up in my house, or there’s a great hotel locally with large balcony spaces against really great textured white walls.
Below are a couple of Roversi portraits I like.
