Fun with gels :-)

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.

“Butterflies and Trails”

natural light, Nature, Portrait

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!
