Natasha

I really love doing creative projects. They give me an opportunity to work out a few of my ideas, new techniques, test new equipment on my own time. Doing this helps me a lot when I do client shoots. For this shoot I ended up with two sets of images that look completely different. I had this whole idea of using a single light source, a softbox with a flash mounted inside, to create a nice shadowy effect. Things however did not end up going the way I had envisioned. The flash remotes that I had assumed simply needed a new set of batteries refused to work. It was pretty upsetting especially since I bought this set up so that I could be better at shooting in situations where light was limited. I will admit I was really frustrated by this*. I ended up doing the shoot with my softbox and a regular house bulb. A lot of the pics were dark (I refused to use my flash. I’m stubborn, I know), but for some reason I am totally in love with them. For the other half of the shoot I gave in and slapped by good ole 430ex to my camera and shot away. I got some gorgeous shots from this as well.

This weeks model was Natasha. She’s my bfs bestfriends wife and she’s a hottie-potatie. She captured the essence of both scenes soo beautifully. Nic and I kept telling her that she really should consider modeling as an occupation. Bella!

Thanks to both Tash and Nic for being totally willing participants and for being so patient when things went a-rye. Enjoy! ^_^

*A few weeks after the shoot I asked my bf to check it out for me since I had no idea what would have caused my almost new remotes to die so suddenly on me. He shoved a piece of paper in the battery compartment and viola it was a live yet again. I apparently bought the wrong size batteries for it. *sigh* All that stress and for what exactly…smh
