Like almost everyone else, I made several new years resolutions this year. Get in shape, eat better, spend more time with my kids, etc. One of the resolutions or goals I also set for myself was to shoot more personal projects. About 95% of the time I am shooting in the field for weddings, portraits, senior pictures, etc. So my personal project involved going indoors, breaking out my studio lights and working with a professional model. The end goal was to push my own artistic boundaries with lighting and to work with a professional model who excels in that environment.
As I have a studio space in downtown Apex, we decided to put it to good use and shoot in a few spare rooms I have access to. I really wanted to minimize the amount of materials we used so I even went sans backdrop, which can make things interesting when playing with gels on lights.
I cannot say enough good things about my model for this. Bree was a consummate professional and it’s absolutely amazing what a talented model brings to a collaborative photography shoot like this. So, without further ado, please enjoy some of my Raleigh modeling photography work.
