some shots from recent session with a model that has crazy potential to become a model

Behind the Scenes Video here http://www.facebook.co​m …/video.php?v=47​0107648356 (external link)

and another thread of aurielle here https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=961765

---------------

Aurielle Model ~ Crazy Hair

another shot from Aurielle's shoot

here i have her doing some crazy motions with her hair, head banging was requested by me and both Ryan O Hicks that night,

so after the shoot i bet you she was saying to her mom.. about how sick she was with head banging - lol.. haha..

but the head banging was well worth it..

it achieved for us:

1. Motion
2. Interestingness
3. Edge

lighting was 2 lights in this hall way

1. Back lighting was AB1600 Gelled with Red filter with 86 PLM way back high up. (i had to clone out the stand)
2. Quadra with Deep Octa about 5 feet camera left

CameraCanon EOS 5D Mark II
Exposure0.005 sec (1/200)
Aperturef/2.0
Focal Length85 mm
ISO Speed100
Exposure Bias0 EV
FlashOff, Did not fire

Aurielle Model ~ Portfolio Grey Seemless

Aurielle and I are trying to get a portfolio started for her..

she is in her early 20's and i feel she has great potential to go far in the beauty business of modeling ..

The Grey Seemless was provided by Ryan O Hicks, setting this thing up and taking down is a real pain.. thanks for bringing this Ryan..

to get this shot we had to have..

1. A fan for hair
2. Key lighting was the Quadra camera left @ 2.8 power
3. Side lighting was the 60 inch Softlighter in with AB1600 @ 1/2 power camera right rear for the fill

about the skin work.. (i am still learning skin work, the dodge and burn, at pixel level, takes really long.. so i am experimenting with other methods that gets good results but much less time.. ) i do know the simple plug in's don't get the pro results you want so don't do plug ins..

3 layers..

1. top layer is a high pass filter @ opacity of 33 percent with blending mode of overlay
2. 2nd layer is a cleaned up layer of skin smoothing opacity of 88-90 percent
3. original layer that was hand cleaned up with photoshop spot healer manual mode

BTW it is weird to work with Grey Seemless for me.. it isn't my style... haha

had another shoot last night..

this shot is classified as personal work...

this fall hasn't given me much time for any personal work. So i am glad things slowed down for me to do some work with my friend Ryan and Aurielle (bride to be)

this shot was 2 lights..

1. back ground light on the wall is a 86 Inch PLM with AB1600 @ about 1/2 power

2. key lighting was the Elichrom Quadra with 40 inch Deep Octa @ 2.0

set up shot here www.facebook.com/photo​.php?fbid=101002165079​43278&set (external link)... by Ryan O Hicks

i had the cactus V4 trigger on the side of the camera to trigger the Alien Bee system

All great shots. I think her body position looks a little off to me though in the first for some reason. Maybe her leg positioning is a bit too extreme, I don't know. I'll look again after I finish my morning coffee. :D

I wish her hair wasn't covering her right eye in the first shot. I keep looking at it and thinking "I wish I could see both eyes." Outside of that, it's really striking. Lots of impact in this shot.

The 2nd shot has one of my pet peeves in it. The arm extends out of the frame.... and then it comes back. It's OK to chop off part of the outside of the elbow, but if you're going to do that, loosen up or move left to catch the inside of the elbow in the frame.

Very nice! I'm especially fond of the third, though I have to wonder about the blur -- what is it? Something you did, or something passing in front of her?

about the crop.. i have the full arms but i wanted to focus on her face and hair, so to me, the hair is so much more important than the elbow.. but again, it is personal choices for crops..

it was a blur layer in post.. just needed some motion tied in to the photo and i thought that worked for me..

@ everybody else.. thanks replying.. i know this board active and getting replys are difficult at times.

"Creative posing" follows the same general "rules" as any posing. For example, the same things that look awkward/unnatural in standard or traditional posing have the same affects in creative posing. Of course it's pretty common to throw out all sorts of things in the name of creativity and/or art, but to suggest there aren't "rules" (more like guidelines, suggestions,...) is kind of silly. That obviously could also lead to a discussion of what is creative or what is art, but like you said..."personal choices".

Anyway I don't think it was the pose that bothered me before my coffee really. After looking at it again I think I found the bright spot distracting.

I have really loved seeing this series as it comes up on flickr Pham! Each shot is so unique she will have a fantastic portfolio already just from you. Crazy model potential indeed!

I keep getting drawn back to the "Crazy Hair" shot, love the colours in that!

i sorta agree with the bright spot.. i can't control that area, the ground was too reflective..

i did try to burn down that area, and it made it look too dark for her cloths because it kinda blended into her black outfit..

i guess i could have turned down the back ground lights..

live and learn.. right?

Hey Pham,

As much as as we appreciate your work, I also want to add a thanks for including the setup info and a little behind the scenes so we can continue to learn! Great shots!
