A quick post this week, and to follow on from last weeks post. Strangely enough it’s another of my attempts at getting a little creative. I had a photographic studio shoot arranged with another local model, Natalie. Who again, I have to say was brilliant, we had a good laugh during the shoot and we captured lots of great images.
Using Natalie’s Dancing Skills
We captured a selection of different fashion and lifestyle images and having a good chat during the process. We eventually got onto the subject of dancing! Natalie is a professional dancer and dances with her sister, obviously this gave us some common ground as I am a self trained ‘drunken dancer’. Can I also add at this point for the record that Natalie “could not believe that I was 38!!” Anyway it was her dance training that gave me my ‘creative flashback. I remember once seeing an image of a girl arched on a mans hand, and wondered if we could create something along those lines. I just operated the camera and because Natalie would be super flexible we got an amazing image.
So after a bit of Photoshop retouching, here it is, I wanted a Classic Fine Art feel but with a modern twist.
Putting aside the fact that Natalie added the looks and has produced the perfect pose. I feel I have to give a special mention to the ‘hand model’. I think the curve in the wrist is just perfect. Who was this hand model I here you ask…… you’re right it was the one and only 38 year old drunken dancer himself!
Well I thought I’d show a few photographs of a great model. We did a studio photography session recently with a model called Steph. Steph is a local girl with a great look, and as not to disappoint all the Dads expecting a bit of blue, here you go;
A bit of blue for the Dad’s
Steph and I discussed a few ideas prior to the shoot, we were keen to capture 2 completely different looks. She has an interest in the ‘Pin-Up’ style of photography, with a bit of a fun but cheeky undertone, as well as her more natural, I’ll call it “Rock Chick” look.
Big Eyes and Blue Hair
Steph was an easy model to work with, good fun and had great interaction with the camera. Slightly odd taste in music!! But hey not everyone has great musical hero’s like me, he presses play on his Van Halen CD.
Behind The Mask
So after capturing some images of Steph’s more usual look, well not that she wears a black mask on a day to day basis.. that’s more like Tom’s scene! We moved onto some more ‘Pin-Up’ inspired photographs.
A little burlesque
I suppose the above shot is more burlesque than Pin-Up but still incorporating a shocking pink background…I knew I’d use it one day! I love the colours that are in Steph’s hair, blue’s, purple’s and green. When her hair is down you can’t see these other colours.
Well last of all for all those wanting a bit of cheek… here you go;
I think this was the first time we’d hung the washing out inside the studio! We were really happy with our studio photography session with Steph and can recommend her to any photographer.
