My Studio Lighting Work > Pure Rebel + Floofie + Mercy
Note: updated 1/16/16.
This model is known as Pure Rebel who has a classic 60's look. 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. More importantly is how she knows how to pose well and move her body after a few flashing to keep things fresh with little to no direction. She is a traveling model and has worked with hundreds of shooters from some of the most respected pros to amateurs like me. She also trains other models on how to pose and has runs some group photos shoots.

Here's a short video I shot during this photo shoot: vimeo.com/128833470 I also added a few more videos there from more recent shoots with her.
I had attended a group shoot back on 3/17/13 along with 10 other photographers and 6 models at a photo studio in Beaverton, Oregon. They had those models pose for us at 5 different set-ups during that 3 hour shoot. It was very well organized where we teamed up with another photographer and switched between stages 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 flash, 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 quite as dark, as it should not have been altered. I was impressed with what clear images I was able to get with just a crop frame camera with the right lighting. Not much alteration was needed on these images post production, but it still takes around 10 to 30 minutes to process each image, so it's going to take some time to fully scan through all 350 of these usable images I captures of her to see what all is worth posting here.
I have wanted to shoot with this gal again, as she is very special, so I finally arranged to shoot her again on the 21st of January 2016, and again on 4/9/16 in a duo shoot with Floofie, so here is a taste of the 900+ new images I captured from each of those shoots of her lovely likeness with my better full frame camera.
