Katelyn is a young woman making her way into the modeling industry. She contacted me because she had done several shoots with other photographers and was not getting the resluts she wanted. She felt the images that she had received from her earlier shoots lacked depth and emotion, so she and I had a cup of coffee a week before our shoot and talked about what she is looking to add to her portfolio.
We decided to do a couple of different looks, including some black and white more traditional looks, to some more adventurous looks including some formal dresses and added a little fun with a blue wig she had.
Katelyn and I are going to shoot again after the holidays, concentrating on a "grunge" look that she wishes to add to her portfolio. She was a lot of fun to work with, having a playfulness that was balanced with a serious work ethic in front of the camera. I am looking forward to working with her again.
Working with models is always a wonderful learning experience for me. The connections I make with the model, the creativity that this type of shoot allows plus the technical aspects of the lighting provide a challenge and great rewards at the end of the shoot.
Here are a couple of images form our shoot last week...
