First Shoot

March 10th, 2010

D20 2616 First Shoot After more than a month of moving and organizing and fixing I finally got the chance to do an actual photo shoot in my new studio. The giant windows face east, so I wanted to shoot with the morning light coming in through them. Light is a major interest of mine and I like to see what each natural lighting situation presents to me and see how I can use it to create something that works for me.

Of course, for this to work the sun actually has to be shining. That hasn’t happened much lately around here. But Angie and I went ahead and set a date for a morning shoot and much to my surprise the sun cooperated and showed up. That’s my favorite from the shoot above. And, yes, I know it relates to one of Edward Weston’s most famous nudes. But it’s different too. So it’s mine. But I had to acknowledge the reference point in his work.

My second shoot in the new place will be Friday night. That will be something completely different with darkness outside those huge windows, and probably some street lights shining in. So I’m looking forward to that…and it will also be my first shoot with a wonderful model. We’ve been trying to work out a way to work together for years now, but all sorts of things, including an ocean, have prevented it from happening. If you haven’t figured out who the model is, I’ll just leave you in suspense until I’m able to post something from the shoot.

    Oh, it is way better than Weston.
    Just getting the exposure correct blows the socks off a Weston nude.
