Welcome to the most images I have ever put into one blog post. Thanks Savanna 🙂
Hi everyone, Todays blog is a bit different than normal. I usually make my blog posts very educational which I do prefer and believe in. That means that I usually post one image and maybe some overviews clarifying what’s been done.
This post is in honor of a friend that claims he never looks at blog posts unless they have many pictures, so here it is Scott 🙂 It is kind of the old test, you are only as good as your last job. I finished this shoot about 24 hours ago. The job is photographing beautiful, sweet Savanna who has signed with Elite Model Management in NYC. She is flying out tomorrow with her parents for some training and her sister is doing a shoot for Seventeen Magazine. Savannah needs to put together some portfolio shots for the trip, that is why all these images are in the 3:4 format, because standard size for model portfolios is 9 x 12. It was her very first model shoot and it was an honor to be the photographer for it. How old do you think she is? 13 with a bright future, and parents behind her that will totally look after her; good to see.
I used 2-5 strobes in these shots and sometimes a reflector in addition. All Elinchrom which I love except my ring flash is an Alien Bee. 5 different light modifiers on the Elinchrom strobes.
See I can’t post without talking about the images—I want to share. I will put one overview under image number 10. Now I will try to not comment anymore, hope you enjoy looking at 10 images from 1 shoot of 1 beautiful, promising model. I think it would be fun if the readers would suggest 1 image with a comment about what they would want on a seperate blog post. Maybe about how it was done? All shots Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III.
Yes this is the light set up on two images up, 3 backlights, a fill into wall and ceiling behind me ( neutral grey walls) then my ring flash, see the shadow behind her, and then look how cool it works on the actual image 🙂 PS. Yes, the lamp with the beauty dish is not on in this shot, have a great weekend!
