Had Alex DelMonacco drop by for a few hours on Saturday and had a terrific and fun shoot. Sally Kempton was on hand for MUA and styling duties and a good time was had by all. Here are a few images from near the end of the shoot. Enjoy, it's been a while since I have contributed...my bad....Ralph[left]

The color's lovely, but I think the b/w is beautiful. Captivating, even.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful images Ralph. I have one question for you. I just purchased a fog machine for a shoot I'm going to do tomorrow and I've been having quite the time getting it to stay low as you have. Any tips?

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,
Instead of using a fog machine try using dry ice in water. The fog will hug the floor like you want.

Ralph I too like the B&W the best but both are nice. The only thing I wonder is the reason for belt over knee. Seems out of place to me but, hey If you and her like, thats all that counts.

Good Job
Mike

Really beautiful images, both of them! While I like the black and white the best, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the colored one, either! Great work by all involved!

I have a fog machine as well, actually 2 of them. My normal method is to use dry ice in warm water in TWO coolers, one on each side of the model. Control the flow with large white board or black board depending on the lighting you are going for. I use 4 x 8 sheets, one on each side with the coolers on the models side of the white board. I have used a hair dryer to gently blow some of the fog from the dry ice as well but usually that is not needed. The fog machines work well if the studio is COLD to the extreme or you don't need the fog low to the floor, but in this case, Alex is laying for this series and the dry ice is SO cold that it hugs the floor pretty well. Although you CAN use a fan, I find it better to just let the fog do it's thing naturally as with a 5 pound block which I crack up with a hammer before I dump it into the coolers filled with water about 80% filled, the fog moves pretty well. One thing to keep in mind....IF you use the dry ice method, be ready to shoot as soon as you dump the dry ice into the water as the largest and best fog is the first to begin to roll out of the coolers. As time goes on, the fog lessens as the water in the coolers begins to cool off from the dry ice and freeze up. Have fun with it....Ralph
