In a recent shoot with my friend, Florena, we did some pictures with this gorgeous black dress. By the way, if you missed my earlier blog post with beauty images of Flo, please click here.

We used a fan in this picture – you can see a bit of movement in the bottom of the dress. Also, Flo’s hair was blown out slightly by the fan.

Flo smiles naturally; she’s a genuinely happy woman. So it was a challenge for her to put on a serious or contemplative look, which is out of character for her! But we got a good look in this image. See the color version above and the black and white image below. Faithful readers will recall I often try to work hands into my my portraits.

Thanks, again, Flo for a terrific shoot! Stay tuned, gentle reader, for one more blog post coming in the next few days, with Flo wearing casual outfits.

Recently I had a fashion shoot with Nicole in the studio.  Nicky is an aspiring model I’ve had the pleasure of working with several times. In this shoot, we tried out a variety of new lighting ideas.

In the picture above, we had one small light in a grid just behind Nicky, and another small harsh light in front of her, to the left of the camera. The effect is close to a cinematic or stage lighting esthetic.

Several of the images translated well to black and white. In this image, the wardrobe and the background were monochromatic to start with. The black and white conversion can add a classic element to a portrait or fashion photograph.

Thanks, Nicky, for a fun and productive shoot!

Fitness Modeling

Last week, I did a photoshoot with Amelia, an experienced NYC-based actress and model, who needed fitness images for her agency.

(As a new feature of my blog, you can click on any of the images to see them appear in a larger size.)

We followed the traditional style of fitness images – clean and dramatic colors and flattering lighting that shows off the model’s figure.

In addition to using workout clothes, we did a few images in lingerie. These are not strictly fitness images, but could be used by the agency to present Amelia to potential advertising clients.

Faithful readers will recognize Capture0010-5-Edit-sRGB-950px-2Amelia from some earlier blog posts. This was my fourth shoot with her.

Amelia is a joy to work with and I hope these photographs will help her land some terrific new modeling and/or acting gigs.

Amelia  also starred in a video we made about a year ago. If you haven’t seen it, please have a look, below.
