As a photographer, you can come up with as many ideas and lighting concepts as you want, but they will all fall short unless you have a good model. Brooke T is not just a good model, she is stunning.
Recording artist Megan’s The Heartbreak Remedy is now on itunes. I must say, its kind of fun seeing your image as the album artwork!
Doing this shoot for Megan, a singer originally from Indiana now residing in Chicago, was a welcome departure from my norm and required a lot of imaginative thought, knowing that what I was shooting would be combined later with graphics to form the final image.
I am always searching for new ways to light my subjects, and with every shoot, I seek to perfect my technique. Recently I started using a Westcott ‘7 Parabolic Umbrella. After a few test shoots, I rolled out the umbrella for this headshot with teen female model Cosette Tomita. Using a giant softbox overhead to give Cosette’s hair a little kick and some overhead fill, I had the model strike several different poses, including this jumping shot below.
I just found a Finnish article using a photo I shot of figure Skater Johnny Weir. The shoot with Weir in 2009 was interesting to say the least thanks to his unexpected props!
