Order Order

This post brings a little order to my normally anarchic updating routine in that the models are sequential in my filing system although the photos were shot on different cameras at different times. May be I should keep things simple and stick to this method in future.
The first model seems to be everyones favourite, except mine. I found her a bit one dimensional, which admittedly is difficult for one so curvy, and she didn’t appear to be particularly interested in being photographed. I thought model number two was seriously cute and I’m surprised there isn’t more content of her on the web. I have a real soft spot for the third girl. She may have been an amateur but she went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure I got some super snaps and movies.

Scores On The Doors

This year’s progress so far. 3 casting calls posted, 1 shoot completed, 1 shoot arranged. The casting calls threw up half a dozen potentials but most of them are girls I have worked with before. Fresh talent is proving difficult to find. In the good old days any girl willing to show her fanny was suitable but nowadays I’ve seen it all before and want something special. Unfortunately I think I will be pissing into the wind for the rest of the year and beyond.

Progress, What Progress

Last Monday I managed to get down the rec with a model to take what will probably be my final outdoor shots of the year. I was using my Sony NEX-5N camera and 35mm f1.8 lens which is very much my default set-up when working outside nowadays. Did I get any cracking snaps? Well no, I’ve struggled to find my mojo this year. As a yardstick I’ve taken to analysing the outdoor “fashion” photos from other photographers and I’ve become more and more dissatisfied with my own efforts. Okay they are certainly using more Photoshop post processing than I do but that’s not the whole story. I’m thinking that the 35mm lens is not long enough to give a pleasing enough separation between the model and the background and maybe I should go back to where I started and use a 50mm. One step forward, two steps back again, the story of my life.
