Some of you might recall that I was having trouble finding models. This weekend however, I was able to work with one of our own Garage Glamour models, who I had a wonderful time working with--JackiM

Before I post the images, let me give you a little background on my mental state working up to the shoot. Jacki came along when my opinion of models was pretty low, after sending out over 500 referrals at the other damned place and not having a single model work with me. Over a month ago when Jacki said that I could work with her, I thought she was joking. I've heard that before from many other models, but then, the model vanishes when I get my calendar out. But, Jacki held true to her word, and showed up exactly on time looking beautiful as always.

Up to this point I was excited, in shock, and skeptical—afraid that if I merely thought of the shoot I would surely jinx myself in to a cancellation. But, now that she was obviously serious, I was terrified. After all, I'm just a guy with a camera that fakes knowing how to use my camera, and I had an beautiful, experienced professional in front of me--on my third shoot. Fortunately, I had some ideas and Jacki was able to understand what I was explaining despite my nervous stuttering. This is when I learned a few things about Jacki and my skills.

She knows exactly what pose do and when. I didn't give any direction at all, partly because a tiger had my tongue--the proverbial cat is way too small to explain my condition with which I was inflicted. Also, it is very difficult to take a bad picture of Jacki, and when I did it was clearly my fault. And finally, she is truly a sweet and wonderful woman who is a joy to work and talk with (once you aren't intimidated anymore). Hopefully I will have the honor and privilege to work with her again soon.

Anyway, here are some images of Jacki. I'll post more soon in a continuing series...


For those of you who care, all of the images were done with a Nikon D100, AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D, and a blind and retarded monkey pushing the shutter release. The boxing series was natural light balanced with a flash bounced in a white umbrella. The photo in the pink shirt is all natural light. The apeture on all three is f/2.8.

Great images! I like the boxing images. The furniture blends nicely into image (second one).

Halfway through my last photoshoot I experienced the same. I realized it was better I didn't say anything and let the model to pose whatever she thought good. Latter half of the session, therefore, gave better results (images J-3022 and J-3150). Hard part was that I had few milliseconds to capture the pose [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Nice. I like the second "boxer" image best. But watch your details - why the plate & cup behind her, and her right foot? Still, very, very nice.

Thanks for sharing, and hopefully you've broken your "model-less curse" Can't imagine a better way.

[/ QUOTE ] The plate and cup are remnants from a previous shot that were forgotten...as BobbyG says, "Pay attention to details." The foot was a sacrifice to fit most of Jacki in the frame. My back was up against the wall and that was about the best framing I could manage with my lens. Both cases fall into the my fault, not hers category I mentioned[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

You're exactly right. A wet t-shirt and skin would have also helped. Unfortunately, I didn't have any of those or access to a darker setting and the idea evolved into this. I still am really happy with this strange juxtaposition of boxing gloves and the turret office.

Nice images. Regarding hiring models, just make sure you are giving a professional image. Maybe this model could offer you some insight since you have a rapport with her. Some models themselves aren't very professional and seldom check emails they have listed. Look for models who have recently updated the portfolio. Regarding being a little intimidated, just be straight forward and say you haven't much experience. These images show you do have talent. I think you should find it easy to hire more models.
