Last night was pretty exciting. If you follow my facebook page you’ll have seen a sneak peek at the photoshoot I did. Go on, you know you like me, click here to get all the inside goss. While you’re at it, since you’re spreading the love, why not help send my little family to Dunk Island by voting for Danimezza here. Ok, ok enough self promotion, lets talk models!
This is Luke… Hi Luke… and he is a very talented theatre actor who I’ve taken photos of before. He recently did a weekend workshop with NIDA, noticed they were taking applications for enrollment for 2011, crossed his fingers and applied. All he was missing was some head shots and the sweet little darling came to me to take them.
I’m really happy with how they came out and most importantly so is Luke and that was even before I had a chance to edit them. I had fun with the studio lighting although it left me puzzled sometimes. Nothing quite like learning something new in front of an audience. One thing I’m really proud of is that I took them in manual settings without a flash. There is so much more depth and natural texture. Thank you Angie Baxter for helping me believe in myself and my skills again. I’m doing her advanced workshop in a couple of weeks, I’m beyond excited but that’s a whole other post.
Now that the daybed is gone there is plenty of room in the studio. The equipment isn’t up all the time, I’ve already put it away, but it’s nice to see that I can make it work. I’ve come so far from where I started, fashioning reflectors out of bare light bulbs and tin foil. Natural light photography in natural environments is still more my scene but it’s nice knowing I have options. My mothers group has already decided I’ll be taking all their pregnancy photos next time around, I’m giddy with excitement!
