Model variety day!

We definitely had a variety of male models last class here are the results.

(note the picture in the background)

They were all great and really nice this was definitely a learning experience I wish we could have spent more time and do a variety of things with each model.

I took some portfolio pictures during Thanksgiving "break" of a very cute little boy so check back for them.

Behind the scenes & bloopers

Here are some behind the scenes & bloopers pictures I just wanted to throw out there for fun.

Our model touching up her makeup...

One of my classmates testing the light and kissing his muscles.

He was so cute I just had to add him...he was at one of our location shoots.

We feed the model and the birds for a shot that did not make the final cut in my editing.

We also water the models...

My teacher is awesome!

When reflectors attack...

My classmate working it like the model did in this shoot...

New edits

I got to do some editing on the tons of photos I took this summer here is just a sneak peek.

This is a beautiful sunflower field in Miami, Fl. with tons of bees and heat. It was surreal and so much fun being surrounded by hundreds of sunflowers.

On a cloudy summer day we went to the Everglades in Miami, Fl to "the asylum" on Krome Ave. I'm really curious as to the history of the place and what it looked like before punks trashed it but there is not much on it that is accurate that I could find. This building has lots of small rooms with pad locks in random places, other weird randomly placed, and designed things. There is graffiti everywhere and tons of paintballs on the ground not to mention mud. Furthermore there was a security hut in the front and a barbed wire fence all around the premises. Also there were lots of randomly burned things and wild foliage all of this which made for tons of great photos.

The following is just some of the table top photography I have done in my Manatee Community College photo class this semester. The focus was trying to shoot different textures and compose them into an ad.
This one was not photoshopped in any way...

These are some more Manatee Community College assignments. The 1st was a personal piece and the 2nd was beauty in the 21st century. Speacial thanks to my boyfriend for posing for me he has great eyes and I just had to use them.

*A lot of saturation was lost when all these photos were uploaded.

Sun and jewels

On a gorgeous cold fall day (cold for a Floridian at least) we went out to Lido Beach in Sarasota, FL for a shoot. I was fun and beautiful day...here are some of the results.

For the following pictures we had a local jewelry maker's daughter come and model their merchandise. Some of the photos from this shoot may be selected by the company to be used on their promotion material which would be a great opp. This I think was my most challenging experience. I am defiantly learning how to work with models and learning how to find what makes them look their best.
