One of many in a recent photo shoot. My niece wanted some “glamour” type photos. This was the first time I had been approached to do sexy shots. Thankfully, I had a hot model with some intuitive moves. :) I found that giving direction to my subjects is an area I really need to work on. I do the makeup, the lighting, get the settings adjusted on the camera but then when it’s “shoot time” I’m like a student choking on the test, drawing a blank. I have no problem bossing my husband around-LoL-but I don’t like bossing others around…a catch 22 because direction is exactly what the subject is looking for from me. Guess I just need to get over it!
All of my newer portraits are shot against a green screen with the background keyed out and a digital one dropped into place. Perspective is changed on a portion of the background for depth when doing full body shots along with adding any necessary shadows or lighting effects.
