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

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...
