That Eyebrow Thing

OK, this post is about more than “That Eyebrow Thing.” But, first things first, be sure to click on each image to see it in a LARGER and CLEARER size.

I recently did a photoshoot in the studio with Megan, an accomplished singer, dancer and actor.  Megan is working hard in the New York theater scene and waiting for her big break. Given her skills, experience and enthusiasm – it’s going to happen soon!

Faithful readers will recognize my style of “beauty” headshots in three of the images in this post. These are great fun to shoot and can be so revealing of a subject’s personality.

So, in the picture above, did you notice anything special? Yes, Megan has that rare talent of being able to raise one eyebrow and still flash an engaging smile. When I coached her to “Just do that eyebrow thing,” she delivered every time. This is one of the more subtle versions.

Here’s a view of the whole Megan, head to toe. Thanks Megan, for a great day of shooting. Here’s hoping these images will help you land that big break gig on the stage!

9-Year-Old Beauty!

This week I had the pleasure of shooting with Carmen, a lovely, spunky and smart 9-year-old girl.  She is a talented singer and actor with good genes: her mom is an accomplished opera singer and Carmen was named for her mother’s signature role on the opera stage.

This special young lady has the whole package – looks, charm and ability. She has an audition on Broadway this week and will submit these images when she tries out for one of the hit musicals on The Great White Way.

Carmen has a promising future ahead of her in the performing arts – you can just feel it when you meet her. You Go, Girl!

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.

Capture0105-2-950px-EditJ. D., you are a joy to shoot with.   The best shoots are the ones where the model and the photographer collaborate in the creative process – as we did here.

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.
