Studio Lighting > Pure Rebel
This model is known as Pure Rebel. She is a very peasant and professional model to work with, who happens to have a great petite body. One of the best I've seen, and as you can see she's none too shy. I was probably more nervous that she was. She travels down from Seattle to model for us. She also trains other models on how to pose and runs some group photos shoots in Seattle through www.meetup.com/photo-673/
Here's a link to her Model Mayhem profile: www.modelmayhem.com/purerebel
Here's a short video I shot during this photo shoot: vimeo.com/72573687
I attended a group shoot with 10 other photographers and 6 models on 3/17/13 at a photo studio in Beaverton, Oregon. They bring in models for a 3 hour shoot. It was very well organized where we teamed up with another photographer and switched between 5 different setups every 15 minutes, which was really good pacing.
I came home with 1,765 images, but about 100 of them were underexposed from the strobes not having time to recharge from the last blast, but not bad considering. Everyone involved was very nice and polite. It was a wonderful atmosphere. I cannot imagine this shoot being managed any better.
Uploading to DA with it's own processing seems to make these images appear darker than they look on my PC, but the download should not be this dark, as it should not have been altered. I was impressed with what clear images I was able to get with just a non-full frame camera with the right lighting. Not much alteration was needed on these images post production, but it still takes around 30 minutes to process each image, so it's going to take some time to fully scan through all 350 usable images to see what all is worth presenting here. I'd love to shoot with this gal again, as she is very special, but I need to do this set justice first.
