model photo shoot

photo session with model New York

photo session in New York – model: Sarah R

I have already showed part of the photo session with Sarah Raley, in the article, vintage photo session w/ off-camera flash. It was part of a longer on-location photo session in New York. With four changes of clothing, we aimed for a diverse look during the photo session. I’d like to share some of them here, along with some of the lighting techniques, and post-processing.

Most of the photos were taken with the Canon 5D mark II (B&H), and two zooms:
the Canon 24-70mm  f/2.8L II (B&H), and Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II (B&H).

The lighting in nearly all images were with a Canon 600EX-RT speedlights (B&H) in a  Lastolite Hot Shoe EZYBOX Softbox Kit (24″x24″) (B&H) held up on a monopod by my assistant for the day. I controlled the Canon 600EX-RT with the Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter (B&H) on my camera. The built-in radio capability of the superb Canon 600EX-RT speedlights (B&H), really made it all so much easier. Check out my review of the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT.

With the 15 main images selected to show here, I wanted to show some of the thought-process during the shoot, as well as the influence post-processing has on the final result.

lingerie photo session

studio photography – lingerie photo shoot

Aiming for a sensual mood somewhere between Lingerie, Fashion and Art, I tried various lighting setups in the studio to get to the feel and look that I envisioned. I’ve worked with Carly Erin on other personal photo shoots before, and knew her playful and bold personality would help a lot with this photo session.
