Had a really good photo-centric weekend at doing my photography thing. Had the chance to shoot with my niece, Deena Thiel, who was visiting from Chicago. She recently graduated with a BFA with a focus in photography. We met at her recent BFA show and we agreed to shoot together soon.
Had the chance this past weekend. I'll add a more detailed shoot specific post in the near future, but we had an opportunity to photograph 3 different looks:
- DJ Hugh Jeffner - a regional DJ who is starting to make a name for himself. He wanted more "industrial" styled images for his portfolio
- Carrie Bennett Fedor - a local model who I'd wanted to work with for some time. She volunteered to be my test subject for a specific lighting test
- Sarah Sorg - a model represented by Wings Models in Cincinnati. This was a fashion inspired shoot.
In all 3 shoots Deena was my assistant and second shooter. We played off of each other and it was a fun experience. Also, we had MUA, assistants, hair & fashion involved with all the shoots so it was a logistical juggling effort.
Ultimately, all the shoots came off really well and I had a blast. Oh yes, the photographs were solid. Stay tuned to this channel for more detailed reports
