Boudoir Photography :: Shari

A week after Christina and Stacey,s boudoir photography session. I’m in the studio with shari. Shari has been doing some serious gym training and wanted some photos to show her progress. Of her features I think the beat were her legs her butt and her tummy. I focused on the legs and tummy though. The other areas is for another photo shoot. This shoot was done in like an hour. And the images were awesome, it was fast it was efficient and it was effective. M it would have been done faster if I didn’t do the first two concepts in jpg and have to reshoot in raw -_-‘. barring that little hiccup it was perfect. Post work there was pretty much non. Other than black and white conversion, sharpening, curves and level adjustments. There was zero retouching, all effects were done in camera as far as I wanted the image to look. I’ll share my favorite photo from this shoot. Shari definitely has a sexy tummy don’t you...

On assignment: Flair magazine fashion photo shoot with D’angel

shortly after tha cover shoot I had to run scarf some food and drive up to my next assignment, all I knew is i was shooting some fashion, not who nor where, in transit to the assignment the reporter made me aware I Would be photographing Michelle Downer, lovingly and popularly know as D’angel. I wasn’t really nervous because I had photographed her before aaggges ago anyway that shoot sucked as I sucked a lot more then than i do now. I wanted to make a statement with these images as best as I could with the limited time i would probably have with the artiste as I had previously learned on a photoshoot with bet 106 and parks host, Roxie :(. Luckily time wasn’t a big issue for reason i cant explain as i have signed a non disclosure agreement. Anywhoo there where 8 looks total and I had the ability to use anywhere I wanted to at the location. Mostly I had a 1 light setup as i didn’t take much with me cause i didn’t now who i was photographing but I did make the best of it. I used the sb900 in su4 as my kicker light in a few shots that i wanted that effect here’s my favorite image from the set. My reason for liking this image is the Contrast in theme A juxtaposition of her attire and location. enjoy and see the rest of the images and article in the Flair Magazine...

On Assignment: The Flair Magazine Anniversary Swimsuit Photoshoot

😀 :'( With that out the way, lets get into the meat of the matter. The assignment was an all day event started at about 10:00 am and ended at approximately 6:00 pm. I will state the obvious I was shooting models, show casing swimwear by various designers at the moment the only one I can remember is Minka (love her work). Equipment I have not yet recieved my Softligher and Cybersync Triggers so I’m still on shoot through smith victor umbrella’s and poverty wizards. Nikon D2h sb-28-dx and Keisha who had to deal with the heavy lightstand (to give me the positiong I required for my Lights, Without her non of those photos would be possible) The Shoot There were 4 Beautiful models and A whole lotta swimwear. keeping focused on this shoot was not an issue ( I jest it never is). The ladies knew what to do and needed little Artistic Direction So the shoot flowed very well so to speak. I’ve posted my favored photo as a preview of what the output is like. Here I had the light overhead from left pushing light down on the subject. was at about 1/2 power distance doesn’t really count it was as close as it could be without being in the frame I love this shot the most because it reminds me of scorpion / subzero or reptile (i’m sure you recognize that pose if your gamer / geek of any kind) Model: Debbie-Ann Willams Makeup: Latoya Grindley Photography: Gladstone Taylor Here’s a link to all the photos published on the...

Glamour at club Afrodiziac

I’ve recently been working with a few other companies in the media business. I sell my services to their business well, because they need it some entities I’ve worked with thus far are, Socialingua, Ishangophotos and College Lifestyle. This particular assignment was from Ishangophotos. I was commissioned to shoot some glamour images in a club for a promotional venture that some entertainment moguls are planning to undertake in the upcoming weeks, The details from there onward are pretty sketch to me. However it was a pretty simple assignment in my humble opinion, No real challenges presented. The creative direction remained with “ishangophotos” All I needed to do was light and expose right. Here’s a preview of one image from the set. Here I had the light camera left, about 2 feet away, at 1/4 power iso was about f6.3 and shutter at 80 or 100. An industrial sized fan was use to get the wind effect with the subjects hair. She loved it, They loved it, They’re happy and I’m happy that they’re happy. Me personally I’m never satisfied with my work I always see something that could be done better will do it on my next assignment of this nature...
