Day Two!

I guess the word got out! So many people! It was a LOT of fun as always – the models were amazing!

Big thanks to Iman, Navin, Sandra and Walid for all your help!

Thank you!

Please contact me if you’d like prints of any of the pictures.

The Psychology and Neuroscience Departmental Association (PNDA) at UTSC held their auditions for their charity fashion show on the 25th of February recently. I gladly accepted the assignment since fashion photography is so much FUN! You get to control every little thing and post-processing is a breeze.

Big thanks to Iman, Walid and Sandra for helping out with lights, setup and organization!

I was honestly blown away by the models, most of whom had never posed in their life. They listened to whatever we said, offered suggestions and were generally AWESOME. No complaints!

For Photographers: I was originally planning on using a white seamless background for the shoot but due to time and budgetary constraints, I just improvised. We just found a plain white wall and used that as our background. Placed the models on a pedestal, one SB-25 @ 1/2 to blow out the background, and one 430 EX @ 1/4 on a reflective umbrella to light the models, all triggered with wireless trigs. Kapish!

Here are some photos from Day One of the auditions:

Amanda Wu, a realtor from Century 21 Leading Edge, commissioned me for a simple headshot for her website/ business card. I used a simple one light setup – a reflective umbrella set at about 3 feet from the subject. Simple and effective.

Here’s a quick teaser of the recent engagement session with Esha and Fareed! Such a great couple – willing to do anything I wanted! In such cold weather too.

Shot at the Scarborough Bluff’s with my trusty Canon 30D and 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lens.

More coming soon!
