you can find my non personal work here: moontang!
love em both. there are some more & we are shooting tuesday as well.
haha. no. not even close!
hahaa! i don’t know how i missed this. i use old film lenses on both film & digital bodies as well vintage filters & old film stock. i frankensteined them to retro fit my digital camera so that’s always interesting but honestly time of day & angle into the sun. mostly i shoot straight into it. we all know the “golden hour” but within that hour is a period of about 15 minute, season depending, where all of the shorter colors (in terms of wavelength) are removed or scattered due to refraction, rayleigh scattering & mie scattering. this usually happens just as the sun comes up & goes down.
my ideal shooting conditions are clouds but not necessarily “cloudy” sunrise during the spring & summer months. i prefer the sunrise as opposed to the sunset due to a decrease in airborne particles causing a strong rayleigh effect as opposed to an increase in particles at sunset.
Love your work! I seriously hope that one day I can come close to your skill level. I know professionalism is key in this kind of work, but it must be difficult on some level to maintain that while working with such beautiful and sexy models. How do you handle that?
these questions go hand in hand sooooo… firstly thanks. yes. professionalism IS key. especially in this realm & especially for continued long term success. models talk. a lot. if boundaries get crossed, all the models will eventually know.
daisy was a delight to work. fun. funny. smart. intuitive. open minded. comfortable in her skin. the caption was mostly for flavor. she & i did NOT have sex. i tend to think most people don’t want to have sex with me & while it IS difficult on some levels i tend to use that tension. i prefer an overall sexual feel as opposed to a bland “sexy” image. i want people to wonder. it means i’ve done my job.
i hope this helps & i hope to see you hit those goals.
absolutely! gracie is awesome & a joy to work with & no.
