Spring seems elusive this year here in Florence, SC. It gets nice and warm, then turns cold…and so on. March 11th was a pretty nice day to finally begin the first stage of what will result in a three-part modeling project. This is a fashion shoot project aimed at my new teenage model Sara. Sara’s mom is on-board with the project as is my S/O. My significant other has been so supportive as I continue to struggle to get Studio 63 up and off the ground. Need JOBS!
With this shoot my Impact receiver on my soft box kept misfiring. (Yes, had new batteries) I was forced to to go straight to the shoe and my speedlight. My S/O was my assistant. We made good use of the 5 in one reflector (worth its weight in gold) and still managed to pull off the shoot. My S/O was critical in helping me to get catchlight(s) in my young models eyes. (Thank you Margie!!!) It was the day before Daylight savings and the sun at times kept disappearing behind cloud cover which had me adjusting my ISO or F-stop.
Here are the results. I am still saving up money to get my battery head monolights and C-Stands. So expensive! I love the Profoto line but will likely end up with the Baja, Impact, or other brand. Researching your equipment is crucial. Anyway, this part one of three part session with Studio 63’s new teenage model Sara. Stay tuned for session two (weather permitting) as Studio 63 will venture outdoors for an “Urban Shoot.”
