Last week I started a project in a countdown fashion; where I want to post 1 picture a day for the reminding days of 2012, up to December 31st. Those pictures have to be done using a full-frame camera with a 50 mm lens, total duration of this challenge is 50 days.
Pictures could be portrait but not limited to them, you can check all pictures on my Flick photostream, I want to make a remark of two black and white portraits that I have included in it.
One is a portrait of my wife done using just available light from the ceiling at home. ISO 1600, f1.4, 1/80 s; some post-process done in Lightroom and Photoshop.
The second one is a portrait of one my friends, she is wearing a Halloween costume; this portrait was done at my studio in Ann Arbor using multiple lights and light modifiers, ISO 400, f5.6, 1/160 s; also some post-process in Lightroom and Photoshop was used.
I will try to include more portrait in this project.
50 days remaining on 2012.
I will try the 50/50/50 challenge: 50 picture using only a 50 mm lens during these 50 last days of 2012, this challenge is better known as 50/50 for any that have done it.
I will post in Flickr one picture every day, they will not restricted to portraits. They could be picture of any genre of photography. And they are not restricted to Ann Arbor area.
To start with is I am posting a portrait from a session with my friend and model Ashlee LB, she is wearing a vintage swimsuit.
I have had the opportunity of worked with great models, makeup artists, clothing designer and friends. Thanks to all of them.
Some photo session where outdoor in Ann Arbor, MI area. Many session where done in my studio in Ann Arbor.
Any of this work could be almost impossible without the help and support of my family.
This post is about other of my favorite high school senior photoshoots done in studio this season. Other was published last month; multi-location senior portrait.
This session was for a young man, Emmanuel. He is a very enthusiastic senior and willing to follow directions during the session. We tried good variety of looks and some props. All photo-session was planned for a fashion style.
First we went for a casual winter look (blue jeans and yellow jacket) with an editorial touch in the post-process of the picture.
Then we went for elegant vintage look, using as prop my Argus seventy-five camera.
We went through other 3 looks, from elegant, to country look, and back to casual, like the next picture, blue jeans and yellow polo shirt, plus the touch of glasses and scarf.
We had a lot of fun in the session!
Thanks to Emmanuel and his family for the opportunity of work with him.
Starting this fall, I had the opportunity of have a multiple photographic sessions, to make senior portraits of Mercedes. She is a senior in Pioneer High School of Ann Arbor, MI. It was very fun to work with her.
First, we had a studio session. We did pictures with different outfits; we tried some classic formal poses. Also, we tried some very fun and informal poses, jumping spinning, playing with expressions and hands like this:
Second, because she is a great racquetball player (US junior team) we went to a racquetball court in Ann Arbor. We got some very good action and editorial shoots there.
Finally, we went to one of my favorite parks in Ann Arbor. There we made some very sweet shoots. In that session she brought and played her guitar.
Thank you Mercedes, and your parents, for allowing me to make your senior portraits.
Here is a small animation with more of the picture we got. It was made in Animoto.
