Fitness Photography Inveresk – Recently I did a fitness shoot with the very fit and extremely strong Ktima down at the Inveresk precinct in Launceston. Ktima was competing in International Natural Bodybuilding Association the following weekend in Melbourne and wanted to capture images with a gritty grungy urban style of fitness photography for which we are well known. The Inveresk area is great for this type of shoot, if you look carefully around the venue with a photographer’s eye you can find all sorts of amazing backgrounds. I must add though, that at 9am in Tasmania during the winter, it was not the ideal time of year to be stripping down to lightweight gym gear. Poor Ktima must have been freezing, but she was great to work with and we captured some really dramatic images, which I think perfectly showed just how hard she had been working on her physique and fitness. These shots were all taken with one huge octabank as a key light, with a small speedlight fired as a slave as fill off camera. I put a grid on the octabank just to give the light a bit more fall off and drama. Of course I also did a composite, putting Ktima into the Paris skyline with the sun beaming down from above light a spotlight. Throw in a nice motivational fitness line on the images and we have a photograph je pense que c’est fantastique. UPDATE: Since we took these images, Ktima won third place in her division at the championships. Seeing as she was competing for the first time and was up against more than 300 entries, I think she had extremely well.
