I have always loved black and white film. The tones, the grain. But, I shoot primarily digital format and feel like I have always struggled to create a rich film like look to my black and white conversions. Maybe I need to load those 4 rolls of Ilford film in to my Bronica and shoot some film soon….
I shoot in my home/studio often. But I keep trying to push myself to use this space differently. To take advantage of some of the most amazing light I have ever seen.
Thought I would do a little throw back Thursday post to keep the blog updated. Back in 2013, I had the opportunity to work with Bear (finally…..). We pretty much just played around in my tiny studio space at the time. I wanted to do something that really made the color of the latex and her tattoos pop. You know, just really pretty people with really pretty things.
June of 2013, I shot with at the time a complete stranger for my Stripped Down project. I was blown away with her personality and posing ability. We talked off and on for the past 3 years about another shoot. But schedules and life got in the way and it took 3 years for it to finally happen. The shoot we talked about doing finally came together completely last minute and unplanned. Welcome to the best kept modeling secret in Austin, TX.
Social media allows us to connect instantaneous with people all over the world. Complete strangers at least half the time. Then somehow, that person is standing before you while getting ready for their photoshoot. You learn their story; about their life, children, job, thought processes, etc. Lexa is a prime example of a complete stranger that has an amazing story to her life that I had the honor to photograph. Enjoy.
One of the things I love most about photography is working with other photographers. One of my fellow photogs needed to use my space for a boudoir shoot…and my camera and lighting set up. I love lighting. Natural available light. Studio strobed lighting. And mixing the two. Here are a couple frames I shot during lighting set up and wardrobe changes.
