So what may be the last official shoot for the VG20 went off without a hitch! The 16 megapixel power cannon that has provided me with so much pleasure the past two years exceeded my expectations. I utilized the Gary Fong diffuser and a few of the new Canon FD lenses as well but in the end it's the camera body that captured and stored what my eyes needed.
So last night as I was about to pass out I get a snap chat from an awesome individual and she mentioned that she had done her make up like Amy Winehouse. I dont like to pass up an opportunity to photograph so immediately I inquired if she was available in the morning (Today, 10/23/2013). She informed me that we were good to go and that she wanted to get half naked outdoors. I informed her of the weather and she said that she didn't care! Well 2.5 hours of shooting and a few shivers delivered satisfying end results! The sun came out and provided some wonderful natural light and the flash picked up where the sun dropped off! A few outfits, some heels, and bright red lipstick thrown in to the mix resulted in some very stunning images!
Miss Kelsea was no stranger to her birthday suit so comfort was established at the start! Anytime intimates are the theme it helps to be comfortable, I guess her Pandora station contributed greatly as we heard hit after hit from Nirvana to classic Green Day. I think one perk that really stands out about working with Kelsea is that she had coffee prepared for when I arrived at her place! She even gave me it in a thermos! We crossed a variety of debris and arrived at the spot and set up shop. To help her from becoming a block of ice she would keep a robe on when we were not in the process of shooting. We did a variety of poses and touched a variety of shots as I changed lenses and contemplated every thing possible. She was beyond patient with my perfectionist approach and even went the extra mile multiple times! I look forward to working with her again, she just brings a vibe that can be truly appreciated at any hour of the day!
Now it is time for a little treat for those of you who follow my blog, or for many years down the road when someone finds this post you will be able to appreciate the photo below. Due to the nipple being in the frame of the shot it would instantly get flagged on Facebook and most likely result in me losing my Instagram. However on my personal site with my portfolio and stories of my adventures this is the safe haven for my photography! It is not nudity and before someone points a finger yes we did attempt to shoot the image with a bra on, however it was more distracting as she arched her back the bra attempted to pop up and it was moving the focus away from her face. With the bra removed the nipple & ring are more subtle and not as distracting from her eyes as well as the seductive attire of the garter and leggings.
