Busy Weekend - 3 Shoots

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
