I had been given the assignment simply titled, "Fashion" to complete. Typically, when I think of fashion, I think of clothing you'd never actually see anyone in real life wear in a real setting. So my approach was going to be a little more refined. I didn't want it to be that crazy; so I called upon Stephanie once again to help me pull this off. I've had the pleasure of working with Stephanie on three previous occasions. See here, here and here to see images of our past work together. Hair and make up were done by Stephanie's friend, (and featured model here) Crystal. Thank you ladies, for a wonderful job!
With a big storm due the following day, I was expecting my shoot with Anna to welcome us with cloud cover. Instead, we had some really beautiful weather. Accompanied by her friend-make up artist-hair stylist, Stephanie, we explored some great hiking trails in Malibu. I'm still in the early stages of my edits from the shoot, but here are a few favorites from our work together.
Today was the first of two location portrait sessions I have set up this week. Today I had the pleasure of working with Crystal for the second time. We started about an hour before sunset so we were able to get quite a variety of images. We started with some natural-light-only images. With the harsh contrast of light to shadow, we added some off camera fill light. We finished off with some wonderful sunset images. Here are a few favorites from today's session.
During last year's 365 project, I had the opportunity to find and grow at food photography. I've read countless blogs, watched youtube and Kelby Training videos, etc., and most importantly, practiced the craft on my own. All of my professional paid work thus far has been in events or portrait work. My hope is to add the genre of food photography to my list of employed photography work. Here is a sample of some of my food photography that focused specifically on fruit.
