Typical reaction when I try to tell a model stories from when I was young and in shape. Model Mela. (Btw, @chelchiiii is the best MUA, Hair stylist, wardrobe stylist, kale smoothie drinker that also hikes in Runyon Canyon in a full Lulu kit, Ever) edit #2 actually @abswhoo styled this and she pretty cool too #oncameraflash
80s (FAKE COVER) cover without all the words and stuff on the sides about sex and fashion but mostly sex. FYI- I researched what Cosmo had listed as articles on the cover and it made me blush. Women’s magazines were lit guys. #oldschool#cosmopolitan#cosmomagazine#yallneedjesus
Experiment as much as you can. @stephenkhyler had an interesting idea to recreate something from the 80’s when we shot with @oh.sar. I looked through some inspiration and thought it would be fun to try and recreate the lighting and look from the era. Many photographers get stuck into the trend of what the current “look” the industry is, and they forget to play. Myself included honestly. Go play with yourself. #80sfashion#glam#color#film#highfashion#studio
Went on a trip to Ruby beach in Washington a few months ago. Forgot to bring a camera so I picked up an underwater disposable one in a gas station shop on an Indian reservation. Film was misplaced by Walgreens but they found it the other day. Nice surprise. Moody day that day.
Quick headshot session this afternoon with Melissa. Shot 4 looks in an hour. Here’s one, no retouching and a bts shot of some of the setup. Not in the bts shot is another Profoto head bouncing around for fill and to bring up the BG a little.
I just liked her profile in this light. No retouching needed really. Processed though @captureonepro to bw and added some harsh grain. Maybe I’ll post the lighting setup tomorrow if I remember. Model @oh.sar hair & makeup @stephenkhyler
