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. Equipment Used: 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...

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...
