Concert Lighting with Christina

Please click on any image to see it in a LARGER size.

I’m continuing my 10 week shooting project with Christina. If you missed my first post about the photography course I’m taking, please see last’s week’s blog post.

Christina is an accomplished singer in several genres. We decided to create some images in the studio that would imitate club or concert lighting. In the image above, I used three lights – one with a blue gel aimed towards the background, the second a bright light just off the frame to the right to highlight her hair, and the third a beauty dish to the right at about 45 degrees to the camera line.

Here’s one using a red gel. Christina sings with a wonderful country group and I was listening to a playlist of classic country hits she’d made on Spotify while editing these pictures.

I found the vintage-style microphone on Amazon. It’s a replica of “the Elvis mike” – what could be better?!

Stay tuned for more pictures of Christina over the coming weeks.

10 Weeks Shooting with Christina

Please – CLICK on each image in this blog post to see it larger and clearer. It makes a difference!

I’m psyched! Tomorrow, I begin a 10 week course at the International Center of Photography in New York. (See their website.) The course is about building a cohesive personal body of work. I’ve decided to photograph one person over the 10 weeks. My new friend Christina has graciously and enthusiastically agreed to be my subject and partner in this creative venture.

We’ll shoot in the studio, outside and at various other locations. The images will be headshots, full body pictures, and photographs that show some of Christina’s interests and talents (of which there are many – stay tuned!). We haven’t quite figured it all out – but will let the process take us where it wants to.

The images in this post are from our first shoot – just a couple of hours in the studio – last week. We’ll be posting images as the 10 weeks progress along. At the end, I hope to put the photographs together in some way – a book, a video, or a web-based slide show.

Thanks, Christina, for joining with me on what I hope will be a learning experience for us both and a great adventure!

Our niece Chloe from Atlanta visited over Easter weekend. It was a joy to see this special young lady. Saturday morning, we took her on a shopping expedition. She’s seen here below at Saks, in an iPhone photo.

Thanks for visiting us, dear Chloe. It was a fun weekend – shopping, a play, Easter service at our church (where we could show you off to our friends!) and brunch at the beach. Come again, dear one!
