I participated in a Bodypainting shoot with the lovely Rebecca Ann. She was painted in the style of a Celtic Warrior by the incomparable Bill Milward. The results as you can see were spectacular. One of the neat things is that one of the rooms we shot in was painted blue lending itself to being able to use it for Chromakey(Green Screen) photography allowing me to edit some the pictures and put them in Celtic like scenes. The overall product turned out amazing.
I took part in a meetup at the Black Rapids locks a couple of days ago and met a lot of interesting people, both photographers and models. The weather was perfect and the day absolutely fabulous with the models being terrific themselves. I managed to capture a number of nice shots. Here are but a few of them.
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.
Be sure to check out the other shots of Katlyn on my Flickr Site.
I just upgraded to Photoshop CC and decided to pull up some older photos to see what I could do with them. I also found a couple of free Photoshop Actions (www.panosfx.com) that provided some really interesting effects. These photos were done using some of those actions.

I am taking a portraiture course at St Lawrence college with a couple of students that have been on other courses with me. Sharon, Scott et al are enjoying the course and getting some interesting shots. Our instructor Mara brought in 3 models to help out with the focus of lighting in a natural setting.
I look forward to the rest of the course. Be sure to check back to see what comes next.
I participated in two separate shoots recently and had the opportunity to shoot with some very talented ladies as well as photographers. The result for me was some fantastic shots in the pinup genre. Really my first foray into the genre and the experience was great. Models that I had the pleasure of shooting with were: Audrey Hipturn,
All in all I had a great time working with these ladies and collaborated to make some great shots.
