Model Kristin Spealman at Leesylvania State Park on the Potomac River in northern Virginia earlier this summer. A storm was rolling in, and we finished the shoot just as it started raining. I love this location, but the weather can be unpredictable!
This definitely wasn’t a “glamor shoot.” I opted for a grittier, more dramatic look with deep grays in the shadows. I thought it would fit more with the gloomy, overcast sky.
A re-edit of model Luna Mae at Cobb’s Hill Reservoir in Rochester, Monroe County, New York. My photo editing skills have progressed a lot since this photo shoot in spring 2018, so I decided to revisit one of my favorites. What do you think?
I did this series with model Luna Mae in her Finger Lakes studio a few months ago, but didn’t get around to processing the photos until recently. I wanted to experiment with different lighting, but we weren’t able to get it dark enough in there to completely control the light.
Still, I think I got a few decent shots with the red light. This was my first studio shoot – a little too plain for my tastes. I need to have an interesting background; something that tells a story.
Author, model, and actress Maria Libri-Sigle poses at the Island Bay Yacht Club on Lake Springfield in Springfield, Illinois. Even though it was a hot afternoon, she was very patient and made the whole process seem effortless from beginning to end.
I think this was one of my most “professional” looking photo shoots to date. The hardest part was choosing just a few photos to represent the series. Check out her books on Amazon.
