Mandolynne has been high on my “must shoot with” list for a long time. She is one of those rare models that is a) really pretty, b) has lots of good tattoos, and c) lives really close by. Until recently we haven’t been able to get schedules right, but this past Monday July 5th we did – with the added bonus of photographing not just Mandolynne, but her very beautiful teen-aged daughter, Regan, as well.
I really wanted to impress Mandolynne. She is very well known and locally “famous” among the tattooed model community in the Atlanta area. My feeling was that if I made her happy with our shots – not just the end product, but the whole shoot itself – that my reputation among the tight-knit tattooed beauty community would improve.
Only time will tell if I was successful with that, but I do know that the pictures of Mandolynne were sexy. The pictures of Regan were adorable, and both ladies (and I) had fun. And that’s what it is really all about for me.
It has been a number of weeks since I had a “pretty girl” shoot, and this girl, Felicia, and I have only shot together once before – and it was no bueno.
So I had this idea, and I figured, “Felicia would be perfect for this. I’ll pitch it to her.” She was all about it!
We scheduled for today (Friday) at 10am. She was relatively on time. My lights were already set up and metered. I just needed to do a bit of tweaking.
Then the fun began. The chocolate syrup began to rain, and soon she was covered.
Less than 30 minutes later, we were done, and I had some sexy and messy shots.
The lesson learned here – it is much easier and much more creatively fulfilling to have an idea and then find the model for it instead of finding a model and hoping to come up with ideas for her.
Felicia was perfect for the shoot. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. She hit the poses, played with the mess, and was just fun to shoot.
I feel revitalized and recharged.
