I shoot them as they come to me, thank goodness they are all different

March 6, 2016

and that’s not a bad thing. But as I get older things, names and words  temporary vanish from my mind.

I almost missed this shoot due to not keeping my phone calendar up to date. my wife brought me the phone with all these text messages ‘I’am on my way’ and ‘ I’am almost there’………… holy smokes i called her right away saying i had forgotten about it. i was 30 to 45 minutes away and couldn’t get in using mass transportation but Mary and i have had ‘no shows’ and know how it feels. Mary drove me into city in 30 minutes. Where are you? waiting in a bar down the block she said, it was very cold out and reading her bio below i knew she was cut from a different cloth.

My Name

I GUESS YOU ARE KIND OF CURIOUS as to who I am, but I am one of those who do not have a regular name. My name depends on you. Just call me whatever is in your mind.
If you are thinking about something that happened a long time ago: Somebody asked you a question and you did not know the answer.
That is my name.
Perhaps it was raining very hard.
That is my name.
Or somebody wanted you to do something. You did it. Then they told you what you did was wrong—”Sorry for the mis¬take,”—and you had to do something else.
That is my name.
Perhaps it was a game that you played when you were a child or something that came idly into your mind when you were old and sitting in a chair near the window.
That is my name.
Or you walked someplace. There were flowers all around.
That is my name.
Perhaps you stared into a river. There was somebody near you who loved you. They were about to touch you. You could feel this before it happened. Then it happened.
That is my name.

Britteny kind of hippy like but hey I was one of the original hippies.Her Model Mayhem link is 5340850.

the studio was a shambles nothing set up but thank goodness most of the lighting hangs from a grid. but I had no idea what to shot with her nor who she really was. I haven’t figured how to connect my IPhone to Model Mayhem. What a klutz. She did save my butt by pulling this outfit from her bag.

So we begin, well actually she brought her outfit going to another shoot after mine, once dressed she began poseing here and there one after another .

She was a pro at this because to tell you the truth I was unprepared. Usually I have some prevision of what I want to shoot with each model. That doesn’t mean  that’s where the shoot winds up going but at least that’s where I think it will go. This was a pleasant surprise because on the ride to studio I didn’t have a clue who she was, Ok just wing it.

I gave her one of my jackets because she said she was cold, it must have been in the twenties outside, but I though the semi coolness of the studio kept her nipples erect which I think is preferable. Somehow the jacket kept slipping off her. Maybe she wasn’t so cold after all._MG_0490

But I must say she gave me a full days shoot in a couple hours. I like to try different things with each person, so after going to the closet once she picked out this outfit

_MG_0475

Which got reported on Facebook as inappropriate  because you can see a little bit of her pubic hair whoa they got good eyes. I guess I should have used this image below , oh well

There is such a slight difference here my old eyes didn’t catch it. We bought this outfit years ago at a clothing store next to an art gallery we had a showing in.

Obliviously she wasn’t shy but she also wasn’t into doing spread shots nude.

so we got these two shots this one with more attitude but getting the background under control wasn’t easy.Lots of blur filter making her the object of attention.wtf 0458

We had agreed that she was willing to do some bondage/rope work which seems to be a phase I am in these days.

I don’t think what I do is S&M but it does add a little kick for me over regular nudes.

There is something about the texture of the rope against the skin I like. We didn’t have time to let the rope patterns set into the skin as I originally wanted. Do we ever get all we want?

So all things must come to an end as I untie her and she gets dressed for her next foray into the cold cold world. We are not doing a brain surgery tutorial just playing around with things, hopefully making things a bit more interesting. As I say I never know who will walk through my door nor what I’ll walk away with.

So it is as she headed to her next shoot and I straightened the studio, then on to editing. She didn’t respond when I sent her some images . I guess she didn’t need them.

seems i can’t stay out of trouble

April 25, 2013

i’ve not been shooting much these days and sometimes that bothers me. to tell the truth i’ve not found something that interests me. so drawn between the two extremes of not creating or trying to create just never turns out that pleasing. sometimes the magic works but mostly it fizzles nowhere.  one never knows the quality of models posting on craigslist or model mayhem for that matter they are all professional models, or so they say. heck i’ve never said i was a fashion tog, one would never think that looking at my portfolio. maybe in some art director head my look would look good in an upcoming campaign but they won’t be looking for my vision any time soon.

i continue to look around for interesting people to work with as i did with this model contacting her. she was eager to work with me after seeing my portfolio. she set up a date and i thought why not? she had posted a couple interesting pics on her modeling page which i thought i could work. when she showed up here she didn’t bring the stuff i had requested.

i really need to discerning when it comes to my work, but i though well i can make this work. so i had her try on this outfit.

we took a couple of these which turned out ok. as i said i am not a big fashion photographer but i think it’s nice to have lingerie in ones portfolio. we quickly moved on to this outfit.

then on to this

i give my models a prop so they have something to do with their hands. hopefully it will inspire them to do something creative with it. below wearing a black scarf.

now i move onto the last a red silk cloth which she loved how it felt, who wouldn’t?

finally winding up here.

_MG_6901

i sent her a copy of the first image retouched a bit because she had what i’d call problem skin, lots of bumps and her answer was could i retouch her face? i said i had already done some and felt doing anymore would be dishonest. she didn’t like that oh well.

but i posted a question on model mayhem retouching forums about retouching a models portfolios for her saying i thought it dishonest. would i have considered working with her because all the facial skin issues? probably not. so i am the ogre here.

oh well
