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

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.

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!
