Classic Curves and Lines


Combining a classic auto as a background to a classic beauty holding a classic guitar…and a classic black and white post production effect, I hope my viewers agree, is a classic combination of classic lines and curves.

Model: Kristeena (a young mother of one)
Location: Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens, a single SB900 fired through a shoot through umbrella (model right) and a soft silver reflector (model left).

This young wife wanted to create some images with jeans, she states were inspired by Mrs. Rob Zombie in “House of 1,000 corpses”. Yes, the shoot went very well…except for the constant interruptions of several young men (and a few women), who wanted to know if they could hold the reflector or the strobe and help out with the shoot…..well, what were my crew members there for?? lolol…I guess I should consider adding a security team for some of my photoshoots.
I almost posted this in color, but I really feel the black and white version is quite impactful enough. I guess to really get the full impact of this session, you would of had to have been on the set with the music going, and as this was during October (yep, she was getting ready for the Halloween party week) you would have seen Vampirella holding the reflector, the Batman holding down the softbox and strobe, and A she zombie on make up and hair…And as this was also being shot on location near the river with huge rocks, boulders, dead trees and shadowed trails….it was quite the Rocky Horror Show (tongue in cheek). Well..it was suppose to be a fun shoot, vampires and batman, robin, wonder woman, a werewolf, heck, I even think Superman was there somewhere….lolol..it was fun though.
On the photography side…I know I cut off her head…grabbed this shot as I was falling backward (tripped over a zombie onlooker), but I still like the image!

Another image with only the light of dawn for a main light. A soft silver reflector used for fill light but as you can tell, it just wasn’t enought, I definately should have fired a stobe on this one.

Phoebe on the beach:
Have you ever looked through your view finder, and wham! you just knew it, or better yet, felt it. That you “got the shot” right there, no in depth post processing, no cropping, no anything? Nearly every shot I took in that brief quickly fading last 10 minutes of light, was just like that. Phoebe was absolutely nailing the looks, the poses, the expressions…and mother nature was casting THE most perfect light on her. I can honestly say that good communication, good karma, and good creative chemistry all came together for this shoot. All of those elements are absolutely essential to capture exactly what you and the model (or client) is looking for. In the case of personal and private portraiture, I have found that establishing trust, confidence, and adding a true element of fun greatly enhances every single session I have conducted.

Model: Phoebe
Location: Myrtle Beach, SC, USA

Danielle classic glamor and travel image. I have posted this one in color already, but I feel the black and white seems to have more impact. The theme was for some nostalgia and a traveller via sea or land. Commercial work, maybe stock, but a favorite of mine either way.

Model: Danielle
Location: Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8, single strobe fire thu an umbrella.
