Rockin' Stock...

I shot some more images for stock last night. I started with a simple three light set up and the single idea to shoot a basic portrait. After I got the lighting tweaked to my satisfaction I started to add props until something clicked.

This is what clicked.

Nailing the expressions and the focus are the biggest challenges to self portraiture but I still managed to get a bunch of shots in the bag in less than an hour and a half. 

Keep shooting.

Guys Do Yoga Too...

It's been an insanely busy March thus far. I have been trying to really expand my stock portfolio so nearly every day I am planning or shooting images for stock. Today was no exception.

I had my yellow background and a few lights up from the previous night so I just started playing with ideas until I found something I liked. I finally thought to give it a bit of a yoga theme and the bright, sunny colours just seemed to fit.

Here is what I came up with.

Of course, when I'm shooting stock I always try to maximize the amount of images from a single shoot so I shot a variety with different props and variations of poses and clothing. I ended up getting five solid images from just over an hour of shooting time.

Keep shooting.
