Yes She Is Naked

Shauna Toerner from our photo shoot. This is one of the instant film photos I shot for fun and I really love the look of instant film. This was Fujifilm Instax but I also shoot Polaroid cameras with Fujifilm and film from the Impossible Project which is now Polaroid Originals.

By the way Shauna is an incredible model and looks gorgeous naked. I get to say that because I have always loved the art of women nude or semi-nude in photography. For decades if you walked me into a museum and there was the work of Helmut Newton or some other famous photographer shooting in the genre of “Porno Chic” that is where you found me. The genre now also appears as “Naked Chic” and can be seen in high end lifestyle and fashion magazines across the more extensive shelves of a bigger city Barnes & Noble and major city magazine stands. Indeed a mainstay in the rest of the world, just too much for our timid U.S. archaic values.

Personally I like the look and fun of Porno Chic and Naked Chic and that is why I shoot it. I also like poking fun at society and it’s ill conceived prudishness. My only problem is mixing it in with my own mainstream work in such diverse areas as aviation, fitness, and bodybuilding. My more fashion work is OK with it. So I had gone back to hiding it away. But no fun in that and I have been around long enough to do what I want. So watch for more here on my Blog. Can’t put this on Facebook and much of social media, so you would do me a great service by subscribing to my Blog here and passing me along to your friends. Re-posting is good too. Thanks for that.

Photo shoot notes… Makeup and Hair Styling by the wonderful Natalie Lyle. I used a Fujifilm Instax Mini camera and shot about fifty. And they are really great! The actual shoot was with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by Broncolor. At FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks again!

About The Purse

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.

Nova And Hasselblad

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!

A Touch A Taste

Just a touch and a taste. Our model Sévérine with makeup and styling by Blanche LeBeauHasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Thanks!

Beauty And The Bald Spot

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

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

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!

Looking At Her Looking At You

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.

Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Only the best!

Simplicity

Sometimes I prefer simplicity. A 45 year old Polaroid instant film camera and one of my favorite models, Aristodeme. I think I will do more of this in my photo shoots. What do you think?

Some video fun with model Amber Flowers during our photo shoot. It is really fun to do these short videos and Amber was great!

 


A Natural

A natural as in so easy for her to be in front of the camera. Model Amber Flowers in the bright Palm Springs sun. Shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by sunlight.

When She…

Something I have always thought is true… Never doubt the power of a beautiful woman when she sheds her clothes.

Casual


Mesmerized

Sitting, standing, lying on the floor and posing, Noel VanBrocklin mesmerized both myself behind the camera and makeup and hair stylist Blanche LeBeau all day. Actress and model, Noel was amazing even when in a chair upside down. Wait until you see a photograph from that series!

Not any photo of any model makes it to my website. Noël VanBrocklin in this photograph does for sure! Much better seen on a full screen as big as your biggest screen. Bigger is better! Click here… http://bit.ly/1SlfgkG

Beauty Dish At Work

Always working to get my lighting to get it right. So model Amber Flowers was kind enough to work with me on placement of the Broncolor beauty dish. We did finally get it right.

Photo shoot notes… Broncolor lighting with a Move 1200L pack and one strobe head in a Para 133 reflector. Hasselblad digital camera system.

Posing Movement Fun

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.

 


Revisited – The Intense Environment Of Salton Sea

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.
