Los Angeles fashion workshop photos!
When I shoot weddings, the night before, I love flipping through fashion magazines and getting inspired to turn my bride into a supermodel the next day. Forget the wedding magazines, it's the fashion magazines I love to devour to get ideas for posing and lighting and out of the box things to do with a couple. I love capturing a cool ad or editorial spread on my iPhone and referencing it during the day if I'm stuck for ideas. I've found my brides love looking at the iPhone too to get what I'm talking about when I tell them to do some weird pose! ha
A few weeks ago I was in Los Angeles to attend the FashionPhotographyBlog.com workshop put on by the talented Melissa Rodwell. I've been wanting to branch out from weddings and also start doing more fashion photography (no, I'm NOT giving up weddings, keyword: branch out), so it was fun to go and learn more about that side of the industry.
I discovered that my new favorite light is the Beauty Dish which we shot for the photos with the hat. Then we used a softbox and rim light in the back for the other photos. And it was cool, we shot at Siren Studios on Sunset Blvd., where a lot of celebrities had been shot at, like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Kim Kardashian, Jenny McCarthy (ha, hey, I've shot her too!), etc.
Our model Joni was only 16 years old, so I posted her photos on my high school Senior blog for some new Sweet 16 photos! If you know a 16 year old or 2010 Senior who wants her own fashion shoot, send her my way to email@example.com!
Here's a sneak peek at the pics, but check out the rest at http://scarlettlillianseniors.blogspot.com! And yeah, apparently this bronzy gold is the new "it" color for Fall Fashion 2009.
