Neil Snape – “Maëlys Garouis”


Neil Snape is a Paris based photographer, shooting mostly models, fashion and beauty. He also owns a small studio in Paris that can be rented or used to host workshops. Neil shot“Maëlys Garouis” in his Paris studio using 1/60th of a second hand held at f5.6 ISO 200, Canon 100mm Macro IS USM L 2.8 on A Canon 5DMKIII.

His objective was to shoot stylised beauty with a mixed daylight and flash through a diffusion sheet. As a result, there was little or no need for retouching.  “The daylight portion brings the brightness in her eyes, while the HMI adds a few specular reflections on her skin and hair. Slow shutter speed helps to add a slight skin blur when handheld. At the same time, the flash portion maintains a ghosted, but sharp image” adds Neil.
