Danica – Beautiful Devil

Conducted another wonderful photoshoot with a new model. Although not overly familiar with fashion modelling she is very adept at COSPLAY. This allowed her to excel as a model in both fashion and COSPLAY. I have a number of shots below of her in the various outfits. Suffice it to say she is a natural.

Horses and their Riders

This past week I had the opportunity to shoot with some very nice people and their horses.

These horses and their riders are members of the Royal Equestrian Centre in Ottawa, Canada. You should see more of the images from this shoot by myself and some other talented photographers at their Facebook page.

Lighting Techiques

I recently attended a workshop on lighting where we worked on a number of techniques to bring out the pictures to their max. Commencing with a simple one light setup we began with the use of a beauty dish above the model and a reflector below. This provided us with catch-lights in our model’s eyes in two places (upper and lower eye). A sample is here with our Model Katlyn.

The Second setup was similar but we used two Soft Boxes in an horizontal layout. Here the catch-light appeared in two places again however the angle was horizontal this time.

Next we tried some shots with back-lighting. This was done with a strobe and a blue gel cover to give a blue colour to the image.

Here is a sample of an image created this way with our model Katlyn.
