The last time that I attempted to shoot I was unfortunately put at a great disadvantage. When I checked out my strobe kit I assumed that it would have been checked and I would be assured that the proper equipment would be inside, I was wrong. I brought all this damn equipment home and up my 4 flights of stairs, which is not easy when you have a bunch of torn ligaments and cartilage in your wrist....I had everything set up and my friend who I hardly see had come to model for me, except the sinc cord was missing... This meant that everything I had checked out in terms of lighting would be of absolutely no use to me. I shot anyway, and am hoping there are a couple shots that I can manipulate in post.
I am shooting today in the studio and am praying that everything goes well. I even did little painted sketches for the basic premise of my shoot. Wish me luck!

Here's a combination of medium and large format projects that I have been working on the past few weeks. Briefly, the color ones of the blond are medium format and for a project I am working on inspired by 60s icons, fashion, movies, interior decorating...you name it. The black and white and color ones with the brunette are large format and are more aimed at conveying a quietness or subtle attitude femininity and sensuality...
