Hello Seniors class 2012.
There are many options in Ann Arbor and Southeast Michigan to get your Senior Portrait. I recommend Luis (me) of foto-activa.
There is a small animation with some examples of senior portraits, in studio and outdoor. Going from casual to editorial; from glamour to fashion.
With multiple options for the session, in studio and multiple outdoors locations.
Any consultation is free. Do not hesitate in contacting me.
This is the second part of a Senior Portrait session that I did last year, with multiple girls from High School in the Detroit area. Here is the link for the first part.
Again, in this post I am showing other 3 of those girls. They were not models, at lease on that day of that photo session.
- Bianca Robinson – Makeup
- Leonor F – My assistant
- Fantasy On Film – Studio space
- All girls (models)
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
This is the last part from the meet up of the Flickr group: Strobist A2/DT, August 9th. There were those to models, Javon and Adam, we have fun shooting. Here are some of their portraits.
Esta es la ultima parte de la reunión del grupo de Flickr group: Strobist A2/DT, el 9 de agosto. Había dos modelos, Javon and Adam; nos divertimos tomando varios retratos. Posaron lo dos simultáneamente o individualmente, aqui les dejo algunas de sus fotos.
Also at the meet up of the Flickr group: Strobist A2/DT, August 9th. I had the chance to made some pictures with Sonny. Changing from a woman to man model could be a little challenge for me. But it is good to practice. Here are some of his portraits.
En la misma reunión del grupo de Flickr: Strobist A2/DT, el 9 de agosto. Tuve la oportunidad de trabajar con Sonny, un joven modelo. El cambiar de una modelo a un modelo puede ser un buen reto. Hay que cambiar rápidamente de perceptivas e ideas. Eso fue una buena practica para mi. Aquí les muestro algunos de los retratos que logre de el.
Last weekend, I had the opportunity of participated on meet up of the Flickr group: Strobist A2/DT. It was in a warehouse on Detroit. It was very interesting environment, the only bad thing was the temperature, unusual hot for this summer.
I shoot only with few models, Amber was one of them. Here are two pictures of her.
La semana pasada tuve la oportunidad de participar en una reunion del grupo de Flickr: Strobist A2/DT. Esa reunión tuvo lugar en un taller en la ciudad de Detroit; muy intersante ambiente para fotografiar. Lo único malo fue la temperatura ese día; inusualmente caliente en este verano.
Fotografia solo con algunos modelos, Amber fue una de ella. Y este es un par de foto de ella.
