Montana

Published January 21st, 2013

I'm always up for a creative shoot when I'm not working. It gives me a chance to work on creative ideas, develop future concepts and a release from work. Yes, when I'm not shooting for clients or giving workshops I still find time to shoot for myself.



Montana and I decided to do a sunrise shoot. I basically picked out a location via google maps (without actually seeing it first hand) and we went for it. When I showed up I was thinking there would be more beach, but it was rocky and no beach. "Who cares, let's shoot the damn thing and have fun"



I was thinking I would do all natural light but it was cloudy and I couldn't get my scrim to light up the way I wanted. So, I broke out the beauty dish and ring flash. I used a 24-70mm lens (I wanted to use my 105mm but I elected to shoot wide to break out of my habit of going long).



The vibe was cool. One creepy fisherman came up and started asking questions "you shootin' a model? damn, my son is gettin' in trouble lookin' at yer model!" I quickly said, "I'm working...can I help you?" He buggered off.



We had to work quickly. With no assistant, I just went for it. I never spend too much time on one shot. Get the shot or don't get the shot...keep moving is what I say.



Enjoy!
Mikey

At first I wanted to do all Cubism style shots, but I realized we needed more nakedness. Maybe another shoot.
