Just too fun! Instant photographs from my shoot with Shauna Toerner. Actually shot about fifty. Love the look and so simple.
And as for Shauna Toerner in front of the camera…. Just Wow! Love her and will be showing more from our shoot soon.
Including more of the Fujifilm Instax instant photos, the photos from the shoot itself on Hasselblad digital and Broncolor lighting. Some video too! Makeup and Hair Styling by the ever impressive Natalie Lyle. Thanks!
Some people call it “Art Photography”, I don’t. Want to know why I love photographing beautiful naked or scantily clad women? We talked about it today and you can listen to the broadcast soon… at https://bit.ly/2sDqCLJ

It is all about the purse. Too little, too big? Hold just enough or not enough? Formal or casual? With truly one of my all time favorite models, Aristodeme. Broncolor lighting and Hasselblad digital camera system.
Hasselblad, my favorite camera system for much of my work. One of the reasons is that I am a huge fan of the history of the cameras having been there for some of the most iconic photographs ever created from fashion to going into Outer Space and to the Moon. I do collect the Hasselblad publications which are unique and filled with their features of photographers from around the world.
So very excited to have had the opportunity to photograph Nova who was a model in one of the “Victor By Hasselblad” editions. A very creative model and visual artist. Perhaps unusual for her to be the one being asked for an autograph. Thank You Nova!
Behind the scenes photography by my assistant for the day Harmoni Everett which clearly exhibits the incredible gorgeousness of our model from NYC, Nora Zainglein but also my increasingly declining hair volume. More ‘behind the scenes’ than I expected lol.
The incredible Makeup, Hair Styling and Body Painting (you will see that soon too) for the day by the premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau. Studio photo shoot in Downtown Los Angeles, Hasselblad digital camera equipment and Broncolor lighting. Always the best!
Skin tones, white balance, color correct… part of what you look for when you are doing it right; photographs that is. Best verified and adjusted if needed with a known color source comparison like an X-Rite ColorChecker. However I must say that since shooting with my Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting, getting skin tones and colors and white balance right have become what I have always wanted it to be… Perfect! And one of my most favorite models ever, Aristodeme deserves nothing less. For comparison, the full photograph and a closeup crop. Check out the details on the closeup!
Hypnotic, the only way to describe the look of Amber Flowers when she is looking at you. Photo shoot notes… Styling, makeup and hair styling by Amber. Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by Broncolor. Only the best!
Look away, no you just can’t. Even when you do, you still see her looking at you. This gorgeous woman, Amber Flowers in our photo shoot. She also created her makeup, hair and wardrobe styling. One incredibly talented and beautiful individual.
Amber Flowers was so great in front of the camera that I had to share a little of how wonderful she moves. Especially in this grunge elegant wardrobe creation. So very fun! Click on the video below. Lighting was continuous light from a Broncolor Move 1200L and Para 133. Video shot on a Fuji X-T1 camera system.
I attended a really fun event on Saturday night, “Open Desert – Music and Photographic Arts Showcase“. At the Annenberg Theater at the Palm Springs Art Museum, photographs from the nearby desert areas such as Joshua Tree and the Salton Sea displayed big screen behind the live music from “Tribesmen“, “Caxton“, “Mike Pygmie Ensemble” and “Drum Hall“. I was asked why I did not submit photographs for the show. Well for one thing, they were all turned black and white. I like black and white for some photographs but I think the colors and the light in the desert should be seen as you might imagine it. And another reason, well my photographs do not tend to be the usual landscape type photographs.
“The environment of Salton Sea can be very intense. Harsh Sunlight, desolate spaces, an eeriness to the Sea itself. In places a post apocalyptic look that would be movie perfect. But I find it uniquely compelling and beautiful. A favorite location for my photo shoots. Model Bailey Daniels.” – from one of my prior Blog Posts.
