We love Jenny!
Love these gorgeous ladies with great showmanship... These are from the Orange County Autoshow Miss Hawaiian Tropic Pageantry.
The shooting angle was really difficult in this one, as the stage is right next you. Either you make them look "different" or you only get a portion of them. Tough choice... More to come!
Thank you for all your support over the last few weeks! So far it's been a great journey. I did not know how hard and attentative that a blogger must be, until now. I think I learned a lot along the way. Thanks for your patience!!
I will continue to post more wonderful pictures of these great + great models. I really owe it all to them!
In the future, the format may change a bit. The modeling world is full of great talents, and so much to offer out there. I will be humble and provide the best of best from my work, and share with the world.
Again, I like to thank all the models who shared their wonderful smiles, and showed their splendid features, and tirelessly working ethics. Hats off to them!
Wish everybody a very productive new year and a great new beginning!!
This series was shot in a very poor lighting environment (both environmental and self-inflicted). The results turned out to the mere washed out + over exposed due to the harsh flashlight and no bounce ceiling.
Somehow in the process of fixing the pictures, I discovered that using the desaturation method, can calm a wounded exposure, and heal the extreme color contrasts. The results are more personable, and has that "H, Para Hombres" Magazine's cool effect... Very nice. :-)
The first two are without flash. They are blurry, but the overall feel is a bit more real, like in place.
Now adding in-camera flash, things are not too bad, but getting flat...
In the following cases, the in-camera flash is really bad, as you can see the projected shadows behind the model, which just ruins everything.
@My Tip: If you plan to shoot more in future show events, spend some money and get an additional flash and soft cap/reflector, no matter how cheap they are. It's worth it.
Tarama is a friendly model, and she is very cooperative with photographers, either the professionals or the amateurs, which is really appreciated all around.
The OC Autoshow (Orange County, California) earlier this year did not impress me too much. However, some of the peripheral activities have energized the show, and Tamara has graced the event there. She may not be the winner model from the judges' eyes; however, the crowd really got impressed with her easy-to-approach personality. I think this is what makes a model more popular than the others, being down to earth and real.
@My Tip: Sometimes shooting from behind the model can capture a much better story about the settings and occasion.
