So I picked up a new flash last week and ordered some sheets so I could start experimenting with gels. Originally, I was just supposed to be familiarizing with myself with the new gear and I was just going to toss the shots afterwards. After I finished up and got the shots on my cpu, I realized that some of them were actually quite good.
So, here you guys go.. A series of self-portraits with gelled strobes. I like this one because it’s almost whimsical in it’s appearance. Look for more of these to come this week!
PS- Now you can all see my mug a little more often. Enjoy! 🙂
This model was a lot of fun to work with. She has a very direct approach to posing and knows what looks she wants to bring when she’s in front of a camera. Maybe we’ll work together at another time in the future. Who knows? Anyway.. Enjoy the shots we got together 😉

Muse- MiMi Fulton is a model who is great at knowing light and flow posing. You can almost just turn her loose during a shoot and she’ll naturally go through a full array poses that flatter her look and shape.
She’s also very approachable and likes to have fun while shooting, as evidenced here lol.
I had the pleasure of working with Pulchra (alias) a few months back. We decided to meet on a nature trail to get some shots done on location. It was hot that day, though you can’t tell from how great she looks in the final images. There was laughing, a little bit of getting lost (we made it back obviously lol) and great creativity to be had this day. I’m really looking forward to our next shooting experience!
