Light Painting

Over the past few weeks I have been experimenting with light painting. I managed to capture some great images with some very beautiful and talented models. The first couple of times we were just about eaten alive by the mosquitoes but on the third attempt it worked out much better.

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.

Pinups, Pinups and more Pinups

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,

Gypsy Jones.

All in all I had a great time working with these ladies and collaborated to make some great shots.

Welcome to a New Year

The calendar has made the turn and we enter into 2015 with the snow falling and the wind blowing. Having passed a very nice Christmas with the family we now get ready to head back to work. However some shots were taken over the holidays. Below are some shots taken at a Christmas Fun Shoot.
