I had the opportunity of work with many High School Senior Students in the Detroit area; in collaboration with Bianca Robinson (MM#1554129) as makeup artist; currently she lives in Chicago, IL.
I did their Senior Portrait in two days. This session was done totally in Studio; we used different backgrounds for every girl. All picture where done in fashion style. And I used two lens (50 mm 1.8; and 70-200 mm f4L) and one canon camera for the whole session. And this was my first solo big photo shoot outside of Ann Arbor, MI.
In this post I am showing 3 of those girls. None of them had experience as model on the day of that photo session. However all did very well. In that same session we did pictures to more experienced models too (not senior students); examples of them were post last year.
This was other photo-session in a beautiful sunflowers field, this summer at Domino’s farm, Ann Arbor, MI. The other session was posted few weeks ago. In this session the model was LaPorscha. She is a model who I have had a photo-session in Detroit.
This session was at middle morning. It was overcast; but for some moments the sun was too bright. So, this session was done using natural light as main light; and for filling a strobe through umbrella and a reflector (5 in 1). For this picture (above) gold surface was used; and white for the following pictures. As usual I received great assistance holding the reflector from Leonor. Also it was windy, and I forgot to bring sand bags; more than onetime my stand light with the umbrella went to the ground.
All post-process of these pictures was done in Lightroom. In many cases I like to do a good variety of treatments; like vintage in the previous one.
One picture of this session was post in my flick account, and it had very good acceptation.
Thanks to my beautiful model and FB friend La Porscha, for her time and very good work. And to Leonor for all her assistance.
I had the opportunity of work with some model and with a makeup artist of Detroit, MI area.
Bianca Robinson (MM#1554129) is a great young makeup artist. She is very hard worker. In a collaboration, she did the make up for some model and I did the photography.
Having a good makeup on the models makes all the work a lot easier on and after (post-process) the session.
Here I show some close ups from that session.
Taylor – Blue
Kristie – Blue
Stephanie - Silver
Amanda – Black
All this close ups were done using a canon 70-200 mm lens f4 L, one of my favorites lens for portrait.
On this photo-session my assistant was Leonor F, my wife. Thanks
Around middle of December, I had the opportunity of work with two models, Jamie T and Kristin P from Lansing and Grand Blanc, MI respectively.
One of the looks that we tried was related to Winter; we had fun, because the outfit was not really for winter as you could see on the following pictures. All were done using a 50 mm lens only.
Portrait of Kristin
Portrait of Jamie
Both models having fun.
As you could see it was not really cold inside the studio, we could tried few interesting poses. However outside winter was really cold as usual at Ann Arbor, MI
