Off To A Good Start

January 25th, 2009

D20 6620 Off To A Good Start This is from my first shoot of 2009. I just did it this past week. I drove over to Indianapolis to shoot with Tantila, who I met because she has also modeled for Antoine de Villiars.

This was what I sometimes call a “get acquainted” shoot. But it went very well. Usually I don’t really expect to get many photos I’m excited about from a first shoot. I do better with models who I work with repeatedly over a long period of time. I like to work with models who get what I’m trying to do with my work and who I get along well with. But after this shoot I find myself with a bunch of photos that I really like and feel pretty sure that Tantila is going to be one of those models who I work with for a long time to come.

This shot was done with available light and my old single-element soft focus lens on my Nikon D200. My “Digital Holga.”

Today I did my second shoot of 2009…photographing three student dancers from Ohio University in my studio. I’ll be posting more dance photos soon…but I have some other things I want to post first. Maybe I’ll be able to pick up the pace soon and post more often again, but I have a ton of work to get done this week, getting entries in to several juried shows that have deadlines coming up and getting prints ready for the Dirty Show in Detroit early next month. More details on Dirty coming soon.

Thank you, Tantila, for a great shoot. Let’s do it again soon.
