Prof Robin Baker, OBE

This morning I shot Prof Baker in his Philippe Starck styled office at Ravensbourne College as a collaborative shoot with 1st & 2nd year students and with the Phase One tethered to a Mac. Curiously I shot a portrait Philippe Starck at the The Sanderson Hotel in Berners Steer, London some years ago using a Hasselblad and Fuji Provia 100F.

This is as part of the 48 Hour marathon work-in organised by second year Digital Photography BA students at the college as a showcase for their work and also their organisational skills. With participation from trade partners The Flash Centre, Phase One, Calumet Photographic and Profoto.

    In the Prof Robin Baker photo I love the way the introduced light is not stark. It has a lovely wrap-around quality and it does not look like he is ‘caught in the headlights’ so-to-speak. Also the space around the Professor that allows the photo the ‘breathe’ and the slow shutter used, indicative of a tripod. All things that I ‘know’, but often don’t do. In the 10-frames-a-second digital generation that we live in, it is important to remember the basics. Thanks for sharing.
