On Assignment: Jamaica Star Tabloid Sumfest Looks Poster Girl Photoshoot
On Wednesday July 7, 2010 I conducted a photo-shoot, Capturing a series of Glamor images for the Jamaica Star, to show the looks for each night of reggae sumfest; dancehall night, international night and so on. One of my favourite images from the shoot is seen to the left hope you like. the image ran on july 13, 2010 as the center spread for the jamaica star. I didn’t retouch at all, may do that when the time comes around. This weekend is out as i’m shooting a wedding in montego bay and will begin sorting n retouching on that on sunday. I posted the other images from the star sumfest “look” promo on my facebook page. feel free to take a look n don’t be shy of the like button if you think it looks good it.
Difficulties faced on this assignment
- photoshoot took place when the sun was its meanest 12pm – 2pm so i was in constant search of shade and trying as best as possible to keep the sky out of my compositions. I pretty much had to max the shutter for all images, and work the aperature and light accordingly to expose at the luminance levels I wanted / needed
That was pretty much it in terms of problems faced. everything else i could have worked around.
- nikon d2h
- sb 28dx
- cactus poverty wizards
- smith victor lightstand and shoot through umbrella
as you can see i got a bitter sweet equipment list for the assignment. however could you tell that i was using a 10 year old dslr?? could you also tell that i did no retouching to the subject at all?? I’m just curious . Is there anything you think i could have applied in camera to get a better result lemme know what you thinking hit me up in the comments with your answers
p.s Yes my name is spelt wrong Gladestone.. dunno where that came from but hopefully it wont happen again.
