Native American Inspired–Mini Fashion Editorial

Hello all! I finally got the chance to sit down and finish editing a fashion shoot I did a while back. I have been noticing that Native American patterns and design have began to find their way into modern fashion. I wanted to try to experiment utilizing this type of

Lovely as the day is Long

I did my first special projects photo shoot yesterday with Jenny Sorell! We have some great work to show you all and I can’t thank her enough for modeling for me. She was very helpful and willing to stand in a bunch of itchy prairie plants buzzing with bees and

Advanced Color Portrait Assignment #5–Alien Bee (On Location)

Yesterday one of my former co-workers, Jamie Pickett was very generous with her time and posed for my newest Advanced Color Imaging assignment.

Mary Williams is a Foxy Fox

Yesterday I did a photo shoot with my co-worker Mary Williams. We shot out at an abandoned what we thought would of been strip mall sort of place. It was an interesting place to shoot…but as soon as we pulled up there was a no trespassing–trespassers would be prosecuted and

Portrait #5–3:1 Lighting Ratio

Today we worked with lighting ratios focusing on 3:1 and messing around to see the differences of light quality in the face and hair with different lighting ratios. We also learned how to put up new backgrounds and use gels with the photogenic monolights. For some reason we were a

Portrait #4– Alien Bees In Class

Today we worked on analyzing shutter speed and aperture in conjunction with ambient lighting and flash power.  It was a lot of thinking and constantly adjusting–which can be frustrating but it is very important to learn. If you don’t know what to do with light, you don’t know what to
