Sarah and Derek’s Engagement

Sarah and Derek’s Engagement was another session I shot last Thursday in old town Pasadena. This was a really fun shoot because this time we got to run around everywhere and get these guys in mid moments. Once again I left it to humor and awkward moments to really strike the element in them. It was sooo fun, eventually everyone started saying the silliest things. One person even told them to lick each other. Oh boy, it was a great shoot and Sarah and Derek were a great couple to shoot. Gavin and Erin Wade led this cool session which had great sunsetting light. :)

Sean and Ashley

I was able to have two sessions with Sean Smetona and Ashley Snyder last Thursday, the first session was out on the streets of old town Pasadena with cars running by. None of the pictures on the first half of the shoot called out to me so instead of giving you guys some “almost made the cut” I decided to just show you the stuff I was feeling. After sunset we took my alien bees and white lightning studio lights out to the alley a block away and got some great shots. Most of the shots were up against walls, something I almost never do, but it was a good time to try something new. So you’ll see these shots are probably a little different from what I normally do and what i’ve learned in lighting classes, but its good try experiment and try new things right? Some of them came out nice and here they are.

If theres also something I’ve learned that I can share with fellow studio photogs, its whenever shooting outdoor studio, always try to mix ambient and available light with your strobe, and never overpower excess light completely. Thats something we did great here in these pictures. Go home and try some of this stuff on your own if you get a chance :)

Sean and Ashley have also agreed to also come out and shoot during my Project: Paradise Production on the 27th of february. I’m excited about that shoot because we have a cast and crew of over 15 people, from assistants, make up artist, hair, wardrobe, and models. Sean and Ashley are such great models I couldn’t help but ask. Thanks guys! You were awesome, i hope you like the shots!
