Model photo shoot in the garage studio!
Posted By: hamidlmt, 03-26-2008, 07:41 AM

This was my third time working with Bailey... she keeps getting more and more at ease in front of the camera. I think she did a snazzy job!

I used various combinations of 2 continuous lights and 2 hot shoe flashes. About half way through the shoot, the batteries in my Cactus V2 wireless triggers started to putter out and I just used the hot lights.

All shots were taken with the K10D and FA 50mm 1.4, FA 31mm 1.8 Limited and a couple of shots with the DA* 50-135mm 2.8.

The entire gallery can be found here: Hamid Shibata Bennett's photos- powered by SmugMug

I like them. The model looks like she was fun to work with. Powerful looks. Excellent rembrandt lighting in the second shot!

Lovely.
#4 and #5 came out brilliantly.
Shadowing has lost the detail on the left side of her face in #1 but the effect is beautiful.
Hamid, you are GOOD!

Simple and effective lighting. Her poses appear so natural, yet conveying a sense of cool air.

The idea of using ropes are really clever. I love that use of prop.

Great series!

Bailey is really fun to work with. Next time out, we may split the cost of a hair/makeup artist and try something really different!

Thanks! I'm always quite surprised to find fun shots like those when I start going through the editing process.

That first one was a bit of a fluke, I admit... My hot shoe flash didn't quite recycle back up a shot or two before, so I turned it off because the lighting seemed so much more dramatic.

Thanks... I like that one too. She wanted to wear that shirt to make some sort of statement.

Thanks! I really feel she is a natural... far more at ease than many far more experienced models.

It's amazing what a simple prop can do.... especially for these plain background studio shots. I found a bunch of rope in a forgotten drawer in the garage and slung it up over a beam.

This is another great series Hamid. I checked out the gallery and there are quite a few other shots that I think turned out great that you have not posted here. Really nice work.

Really nice series, and I don't usually get very excited about model shoots. Good job to both you and the model. I especially like #2.

Great shots, and the model - she is somehow so expressive in her face and gesture, guess she is a joy to photograph.

Fritz... I took just over 200 shots and had a hard time narrowing down to 45 or so. I love shoots like that, where I get so many keepers!

Thanks! I really enjoy model shoots.... almost as much as shooting doggies!

Bailey is a joy to photograph... one of the best models I've worked with to date. Charming, friendly and professional.
