Been Away Too Long..

Sorry I’ve been away from the Blogosphere for a bit. My Mark III is back in my possession and I have been putting it through its paces. I still think there is a focusing issue with the camera but I don’t have time to send it back to Cannon for another look. The weekend before last I shot the Black Canvas Project and yesterday one of our MIY models who going to make a run at modeling. Once you see his pictures you’ll quickly realize that this young man has a great chance at making it.

Yesterday’s shoot with Malcolm went very well but this darn wind in Central Illinois bent my photography umbrella, broke my cold shoe flash bracket and sawed off my brass monkey. I was too busy to get pissed and think about how much that gust of wind cost me. I knew I should have gotten some sand bags so it’s my fault. I am headed out of town this weekend, west coast bound, so a couple quick post this week and I will be offline for 11 days but will have some very cool shots when I get back.

I'll be Blogging yawl...

Location, location, location...

Location, location, location.... The more I understand about photography, the more possibilities I see in places to shoot in and around town. There are some very cool places and walls in our little town that will be great for our models with some contrasting clothing and warming techniques. I have approximately 4-6 good outdoor locations to shoot at and will be exploring shadows, etc like the ones I found in this shoot with the bridge.

This downtown location is off the beaten path and we are going to use it for our MIY project. I'll be honest with you, I would have never thought to use this location or looked for it in the place we found it. I need to do some studying up on where the light is at certain times of the day in order to have it yield the most for us with this project. Until then..

I'll be blogging you...

Divas in Training

Today we met with what we thought would be our "last teen" for MIY (Model in You). Well we got our last teen (Jafari), her sister Brittany and Sasha and another opportunity to shoot Brie. It was a full compliment of "Divas in Training" and they were a ball and wore us out BIG TIME!!! So much youth, energy and Divaness; yes I made that word up.

Note to self; pay attention to the time of day as the shadows and brightness of the sun was very challenging forus ang these young ladies.
