Chloe between two subway trains on a short trip to Nuremberg

The Würzburg model Chloe, confident on a platform between two subway trains

During my short trip at the end of August to my buddy Rene in Nuremberg, I had the great opportunity to photograph the pretty model Chloe between two subway trains. You can see the result here.

Many thanks to Rene for the great organization of the weekend and the great shoot and many thanks to Chloe for your excellent work in front of the camera.

I took the picture with my favorite portrait lens, the Sigma 85mm F1.4 Art. Both pictures were taken with an open aperture. There was some light support for brightening from the Godox V1. I took the picture at 1/2000 second with a sensitivity of ISO 50. The post-processing took place on the BenQ PD3200U.

In the photo series with the Würzburg model Chloe, there is an exciting interplay between the urban atmosphere and the aesthetic presence of the model. The scenery takes place between two subway trains while the rain falls softly on the streets.

Chloe is slightly mirrored in the two trains, adding an enigmatic and surreal touch to the image. The reflections create a play of light and shadow that emphasizes both her beauty and her personality. The blurring of the surroundings combined with Chloe's clear contours creates a unique visual dynamic.

Chloe's expression in front of the camera has a mysterious intensity. Her eyes radiate a mixture of melancholy and fascination while her gaze wanders into the distance. The subway trains that frame the photo symbolize the speed of urban life, creating a sense of movement and dynamism.

I thank Chloe for her extraordinary collaboration and her unique charisma. Her presence made this photo series special and inspired me to push the boundaries of photography and explore new perspectives.

Leading lines in portrait photography - a powerful design element to direct the viewer's gaze

Leading lines are a powerful design element that can also be used effectively in portrait photography. They help direct the viewer's gaze, create visual dynamism, and make the composition more interesting. Here are some ways you can use leading lines in portrait photography:

  • Roads and Paths: Use roads, paths, or paths to create a line that runs through the image and draws the eye to the model. This creates a certain depth effect and gives the picture an additional dimension.
  • Architectural Elements: Buildings, stairs, fences, or other architectural structures can serve as leading lines. They can either lead directly to the model or act as a frame to stage the model.
  • Natural Elements: Use natural elements like tree trunks, rivers or rock formations to create leading lines. These can draw the viewer's eye to the model and create a harmonious connection between the model and the environment.
  • Geometric Shapes: Leading lines can also be created by geometric shapes, such as diagonal lines or spirals. These give the picture structure and a certain dynamic.
  • Light and Shadow: Use light and shadow to create leading lines in the image. For example, sun rays can pass through trees or windows and draw the viewer's gaze to the model.

The use of leading lines in portrait photography requires a keen eye for composition and the ability to capture the right moment. Experiment with different perspectives, angles, and lines to create interesting and dynamic portraits. Remember that the leading lines should support the model without overpowering it. The lines should direct the viewer's gaze and draw attention to what matters most - the face and personality of the model.
