I haven’t posted in a while and feel really horrible about it. I haven’t been shooting as consistently as I would like, besides once a week in the studio, because of all the snow that has gotten dumped on Boone. I have, however, been busy editing some photos that I plan to post soon. In the mean time, here are a few shoots from the other day.
This was a skin shoot for my Fashion and Beauty class. My friend and dancer, Kelly, modeled for me, so her back is amazing! I think it turned out well and I really love the dramatic shadows! My friend, Ian, suggested turning it into a series and I’m really excited about that idea, so we’ll see where that goes.
After my initial shoot I wanted to mess around with some backlighting. I did backlighting one other time but it didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted. It took a while to set up the lights because I was having trouble with the floor being too dark and her being too light. After adjusting my aperture so it wasn’t wide open (which I should have realized in the first place, duh!) we had success. This photo required minimal editing which was really exciting! All I did was make the background more white and add a curves layer. The silhouette of Kelly is as it was shot!
