Photography Session: Brittany Savage

2 07 2015

Hey everyone! Welcome to what will be another installment of my photography session. Today, it’ll be a short write up but I have two pictures of one model I shot a couple days ago.

brittany1This past Tuesday, I shot Brittany Savage of Couture Modeling. Both photos that you see were taken just outside of the studio. In the above photo, the car used belongs to Brittany. The outfit was a good compliment to the vehicle along the building that you see in the background. The first shot was all natural lighting as it was overcast weather at the time. For the second shot, I had to use my external flash.

Photography Session: New Pics of Marissa Stearns and Stefanie Perry

15 06 2015

Hey everyone! Welcome to another installment of my blog. Today brings another edition to my photography session series. After finding success with a new style of editing, I decided to try it out on two more recent pics and I’m loving how it’s coming together.

Model: Marissa Stearns. Hair by Nicole Latty and Makeup by Bri Quigley.

The first photo is one that I took of Marissa at a coffee place nearby the studio. I only used a bounce board to provide a slight amount of fill as the natural lighting took care of the rest.

And the second photo, I shot just outside the studio. I did originally bring my flash but opted not to use it since the natural light was doing a great job. For both pics, the editing was a combination of strategies that I’ve learned and used from the first picture to now. So I’m loving the results that Im now getting with these pictures and I hope you love them as well!

First Post of 2015: Part 1 of the Stefanie Perry Transformation

16 01 2015

Hey what’s up everyone? The first edition of my blog for 2015 is officially here and what better way to kick things than with a new video for Couture Modeling!

We managed to shoot everything earlier in the week. Kristin came up with a great idea for a look and we were fortunate to have Stefani Perry be available to be the model featured. Due to time constraints for some, getting everything that we needed was a tough task. We ran out of daylight for one shot I wanted to do and I didn’t have enough time to switch equipment for another shot. Fortunately, we worked with what we had and I’m happy with how it came out.

For this video, the footage used were the ones shot on the shoulder rig. I mostly shot with the 50mm lens and switched to the 24mm lens on a couple occasions. For post production, I did some color correction and tweaked exposure settings for some shots. Because I only used available lighting, I experimented with the grain removal tool to help reduce noise. While it was very handy, it was causing the program to crash so I ended up only using it on a few clips instead of the whole video.

So thanks to everyone who helped out and I hope you like it. Be sure to check out the links below and keep an lookout for part 2 later down the road as I’ll showcase the photos taken after the shoot!
