Fashion Photography - Class 1

I'm taking a Fashion Photography class at Humber to hone my studio skills. It's been over 2 years since I worked with studio lights and models. I'm REALLY enjoying myself and I've been getting a lot of positive feedback from classmates and the models themselves.

Here is Gillian, a student from the daytime photography program modeling for my class. She was awesome to work with and I hope to do so again.

On Location - Month 3

So the plan was to meet in Kleinburg and explore the back woods of the McMichael Art Gallery. All was fine and dandy except it was -20 and freezing. I was so cold I didn't focus too much on the photography, I was more concerned with my frozen toes. Why did I think it would be a good idea to wear rubber boots in the snow?

The above pic is part of a series I am working on showing pattern and movement. Removing the subjects literal interpretation and making it looked skewed. I don't think I'm quite there yet but comments are always welcome.

I am so tired!

It's been one of those days where running around has taken it's toll, but I have to say that it's also days like this that make me happy and appreciate the fact that I am doing something I love to do. It may not be everyday, but I'm working towards that.

I participated in a photo shoot today that documented the filming of an interactive hockey "display" for the Anaheim (arena or museum...) featuring Lance Brown from CTV. The client wanted behind the scenes photos showing the crew in action and although it started out questionable it ended rather well. By questionable, I mean that I was dealing with lighting conditions I wasn't able to control. Working on a live set sure has it's advantages but as a photographer shooting 2 totally different lighting situations it was hard to keep up. I wish I had two cameras on hand to accommodate everything. All in all I think it went well and I really had a great time doing it. Here's to more shoots in the future!
