The joys of boating at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea with model Xtine.
Model Xtine adding some color to the apocalyptic environment of the Salton Sea. Our photo shoot at Bombay Beach.
For my photographer friends; my Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. So here was the problem… I really wanted to use this framing of the posts with the Salton Sea directly behind her. But I also had really intense Sun directly behind her.
So a white Broncolor beauty dish to my left at about a 45 degree angle to her just outside the frame held by my assistant. Powered by a Broncolor 1200L Move pack. It was also very windy so any big light modifiers would have been a problem.
The camera was my Hasselblad H4D-40 with the Hasselblad HC 100mm f/2.2 lens.
Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea with model Xtine. Her first time around the Salton Sea, my assistant’s first time around the Salton Sea. Photographed with a Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!
Actually a partially overcast day so we had sun and then no sun. To my left 45 degrees to the model was my assistant holding a Broncolor white Beauty Dish, only one light powered by a Broncolor 1200L Move pack. He carried that in it’s shoulder case. Winds at Bombay Beach can be very significant, so that was a factor in my light modifier decision and to not try using a stand. By the way, Xtine the model here, is 6ft-1 in her bare feet.
A few moments of posing interlude with Kajira during our photo shoot. The photo shoot itself done with Broncolor lighting and a Hasselblad digital camera system. The video with a Fujifilm X-T1 camera.
Six seconds to get your attention! Does it work? The video from a destined edgy fashion editorial photo shoot with Amber Flowers. Why did I edit the video to six seconds?
My photography is very involved with advertising, editorial features and online content. It is my business. I make an effort to pay attention to trends and such that are related. I just read an interesting story and report in AdAge. Facebook is working with some of it’s advertisers to develop the concept of specifically six second video ads.
So it seems to me that six second video overall might be interesting. Let me know what you think? Thanks!
More behind the scenes posing fun with Kajira. We have more videos that you will only be seeing here and not on social media. Somewhat revealing. Think chic. “Porno Chic”…
A term created by New York Times art critic Hilton Kramer in the 1970s to describe the work of fashion photographers Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Chris von Wangenheim. Editorial and advertising photography that uses nudity, eroticism… sexual and sultry to be more than pornography. I also refer to it as “edgy lifestyle” and think it is great fun. That is why you see it in my photography. It is not just being naked.
Video on my Fujifilm X-Series X-T1. The strobes firing are Broncolor. The actual photo shoot on Hasselblad digital. Always the best! Thanks!
