Gary K. has sent us some of his photos from our last model photography workshop. He has had several workshops with us and I want to thank him for his support and talent in photography. You can read his testimony in our Workshop Testimonials Page. Gary always tries to capture the moment and he has a very interesting journalistic view. I want to wish all the best for him and his new adventure in Model Photography. (These images are not edited. I just convert them to jpg to use them in this page)

Our next Model Photography Workshop is in Natural Light photography. Book your ticket now as there are few spots available.

Using Multiple Sources of Natural Light

I recently shot this image in my master bedroom.

Natural Light Model Photography

Sometimes when we talk about shooting natural light in a house, we just think of it in a single dimension. However, if you train your eye you will be able to see how the same light source (the sun/clouds) can have multiple angles depending on where you locate your model.

In this case, we have three different angles the model has light hitting her. She is sitting on a little night table with 3 ft wide window behind her and the same size window to her right (camera left). I am standing on the patio just outside the door. Look at the light on the the right side of her head (note the light on the fingers). This works along with the light from the doorway as the key light. The left side of her face has a light shade causing a nice contrast in this image.

On a compositional note, count the triangles in this image. The more triangles you can work into your image, the stronger it will become. Knees and elbows are great triangle creators.

Images from our last week Class

Last week we co-hosted a two part Model Photography workshop. David Falk instructed our students on how to communicate with a model and shared his expertise on posing and using studio light to create amazing photos.

The first part of the workshop was on Thursday with a classroom session. On Saturday we had a full four hour hands-on session with studio shooting. There was plenty of time to interact with the model and experiment with studio equipment. It was a fun workshop for all!

I want to thank all our attendees who came to this workshop, as well as our talented and friendly model Monika Georgieva.  A big thank you also goes to our makeup artist Joji Dhillon who did a wonderful job. She is very professional and reliable and I highly recommend Joji  if you are looking for a wonderful makeup artist.

Did you know we have a great collection of Studio Lights, Soft boxes, Light stands, Backdrop stands, and light modifiers that you can rent for your projects?

We also have a selection of flashes and lenses in stock for rentals. Our rental fee is very competitive with the added advantage of having high end equipment available so close to home. Check our rental section for more information and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

I am going to post some behind the scene images that I took (mostly with my phone!) and as I get images from our students I will post them here for your enjoyment. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter or “LIKE” our Facebook page for all the updates!

Meet the Model for Model photography Workshop

We just wanted to give you one more bit of information regarding our Model Photography Techniques workshop that is coming up quickly on March 6! The first part of the workshop will be giving you all the background knowledge, tips, techniques, and information that you need in order to help you be successful in model photography and high-fashion photography. The second part of the workshop, we have promised, will be very hands-on, and will allow you a chance to practically apply the principles you have learned in the classroom.

With this in mind, we would like to introduce to you the model whom we will be photographing on March 8, as well as the makeup artist who will be preparing her for the shoot:

 Meet the Model : Monika Georgieva

“Monika is a stunning model from Bulgaria who has a 6’1” statuesque figure. She has that typical Eastern European beauty with absolutely flawless lily white skin. Her presence simply exudes elegance. It is pretty much impossible to take a bad image of Monika. She knows her poses and is very aware of her angles.

Monika has recently graduated from Fashion Design school and has designed a high end of lingerie which she is looking to manufacture.

I have shot with Monika many times in the last few months using her primarily for my lingerie line. Recently we shot for one the America’s old lingerie companies. Come and participate in our class. The opportunity to shoot Monika is worth it alone!”

Meet the Makeup Artist : Joji Dhillon

Now, any really great model has help from a really great makeup artist! For this class, we wanted to give you the full experience, and we didn’t want to cut corners. So, we will also have a makeup artist along (also known as a MUA) who will be doing beautiful work with our model at the beginning of the day. Joji Dhillon is a local MUA who does amazing work, and has worked with David in the past. It is a good idea  to develop a great working relationship with makeup artists as well as models, because they are equally as important to a complete shoot.

Now the cat is out of the bag! You know who will be assisting you on the day, and you are in for a fun, and informative time. If you haven’t registered yet – you don’t have much time left! Don’t miss out – Register for Model Photography Techniques today!

There are only few spots left. Register now to book your spot!

How to create Better model portrait

How to Dramatically Improve your Portraits with a Minor Adjustment

Do you ever look at portraits and wonder why some grab your attention and others just seem to be a bit of a yawn? Often the difference in these two images are minor differences. In portrait photography it is very important to pay attention to minor details. When I am shooting, I have a mental check list that I go through as I see the image in my view finder just before i click to capture the image.

One minor item I have learned over the years of model photography and analyzing many images is “parted lips”. It seems often when a model has her lips closed it produces a boring static image and seems that the picture or the model doesn’t want to communicate with you. I often will ask the model to just slightly part her lips or just show a little teeth. This is not a smile or smirk. It is more like capturing the model while speaking. I had one photographer explain it to me that parted lips produce an image like the model wants to enter into a conversation with the viewer and closed lips tells the viewer to stand back. Photography is all about inviting the viewer into your image and parted lips seem to do exactly that.

These two images were captured literally within seconds of each other and processed exactly the same way. Notice how the second one is a much stronger image.

I think model photography is getting a bigger market share nowadays. There is an increasing demand for model photos or model style images.

David Falk shared some of his personal experiences with our students about finding a model, etiquette, set up, workflow and marketing. It was very interesting to have a pro model photographer explain some valuable knowledge and insights. I want to thank David Falk for his hard work and priceless tips. I also want to thank Kyra Tomko, our beautiful model and Joji Dhillon the makeup artist for their wonderful job. And a big thanks to all of our students whose support made this Model Photography workshop very successful!

If you missed this model photography workshop, we are going to have another Model Photography workshop again on March 6 and 8, 2014. Enjoy the highlights and be sure to register for this wonderful class.
