Fun with Oversized Sweaters!

Last week, I had the pleasure of shooting again with my friend, J.D., an actor and model. Regular readers will recognize her from my January blog post, Shooting with an Actor.

J.D. wanted to try some images with big, stretchy sweaters. I was game! We didn’t really have a plan for the pose concepts, rather just to try different looks and see what worked.

I had two lights on the background to make it almost pure white and also provide a bit of wraparound light. There was one big soft box above and just to the left of the camera and a reflector below the frame to bounce a bit of soft light back into her face. This is a flattering lighting setup overall, while still allowing for shading on the right side of her face to add dimension and depth to the images.

OK, are you surely clicking on each image to see it bigger on your screen? It makes a difference – Try it! Thanks as always for your interest in my work.

Shooting with an Actor

Recently, I had the pleasure of a day of shooting with J.D., an accomplished actor and model. The two of us had a ton of shoot ideas to consider and packed a lot into our time in the studio.

It was mentioned above – but worth repeating; please click on each image to see it bigger. One of the frustrations of blogging is being restricted to the narrow width of the page, but the plug-in program “Fancy Box” lets you jump right outside of those limits. Give it a try!

It was great fun to shoot with you, J.D. Your natural acting and modeling skills come through loud and clear in the these images.

We had a lot of creative spirit going on a cold winter day!

Russia through Another Lens

Capture0003-900px

(Click on any image in this post to see in a LARGER size.)

OK, my title today is a bit deceptive. I really just wanted to get you to have a look! Russia has been in the news a lot lately and Mr. Putin – and by extension his whole country – have mostly been demonized by the U.S. press. It’s beyond the scope of my humble photography blog to voice an opinion about international demons. But I can say that most of the Russian people I’ve met are friendly, engaging and a joy to spend time with. Anastasia, pictured here, is a prime example!

Anastasia came to the U.S. about eight years ago. She grew up in an area near Sochi and attended and graduated from a college in Moscow. In this country, she’s worked as a fashion model and also earned an advanced degree in business. Anastasia is actively seeking a job in the business world and wants to build a life here in the U.S.

We did a photoshoot in the studio recently, working in a variety of concepts. This post has a few of the beauty/glamour headshots from that day.

Thanks, Anastasia, for a wonderful shoot. I wish you all the best, wherever your life might take you.
