This weeks entry stars a brand new model. Her name is Amber, and if you are a photographer in the San Diego area you need to shoot with her.

Yes, you heard me right, Amber has never done a professional photoshoot before. Shooting with a new model has its advantages and disadvantages. I love shooting with new models because many times they havent yet reached that diva stage where the ego takes over and the art aspect of the shoot is still foremost in their minds. On the other hand, many new models are still unsure of themselves in front of the camera and haven’t yet learned to free flow pose. You take the good with the bad and work with what you got.

Amber had her poses pretty much down and five minutes after arriving on set, she was ready to go.

Besides getting to practice lighting techniques, my favorite aspect of shoot is getting to talk with new people. Amber brought up a very cool subject. Obviously she’s into fitness, but not just any old fitness, she’s into crossfit!

Now I have never done crossfit, but I have plenty of friends that do. Without exception they all look like they just walked off the set of 300. This style of fitness also has its critics, but I dont know why anyone would get angry over people trying to improve their bodies, regardless of the manner of doing it. Well except for steroid users!

Amber and I have a very similar diet as well. Except she probably cheats a lot less than I do. But basically eat lean, eat several small meals a day, plenty of water, and stay away from bread Simple!

For the studio lighting I went with an alienbee beauty dish, lit the background with an Einstein E640 with a red gel, and filled in the shadow with a photoflex strip.

Hellraiser Horror Hottie

Hellraiser Horror Hottie

Hellraiser gothic model

Heather is an alternative model originally from Ohio. She’s moved around a lot in her life and experienced many interesting things.

Hellraiser beauty

More importantly, Heather is a fan of darkness. No, i’m not talking about Eddie Murphy. I’m talking about the dark side of life.

Heather’s more than a fan though. Over time she has become darkness. Or at least a representation of it. She knows what nightmares are made of. She knows whats underneath the bed, whats in the closet, and why that sound you heard isn’t just the house creaking.

In other words, Heather isn’t some dingleberry fan of Twilight or 50 shades of Grey. She’s the real deal.

I had been searching for a model for awhile to collaborate on a project involving the Hellraiser boxes offered by the Pyramid Gallery. If you have never seen the boxes, Heather is holding them in some of the photos in this blog. You can also see them in the photo below.  When I started the project, I wanted a model who would know the boxes, and who was a real fan of Clive Barker. I felt that if I just got another pretty face it would come off as disingenuous.

Pyramid Gallery

The going hasn’t been easy. In fact Heather and I have been trying to schedule a photoshoot for close to a year. I even drunk texted her from Mississippi and asked her to come pick me up.

Obviously she didn’t drive across the country and pick me up. I think she texted me back a day later and said, “are you serious?” Well Heather, I was serious when I sent it!

Dragon doom

So about the project. Heather and I discussed idea for a few upcoming projects. You can look forward to many more shoots involving the Pyramid Gallery’s boxes, as well as many other 1980’s horror films. Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Evil Dead and of course Hellraiser!

Alienbees Boudoir

Alienbees sexy

Recently I had a friend who got interested in photography. I had seen her post some work before, mostly nature and shots of her kids. When Christmas came her husband went out and bought her an entire studio set.

Sexy alienbees B&W

They got right to work and set up the studio and wasted no time in getting a model in for a shoot. They had caught my attention so I always looked at every update they posted. Most of the pics they posted included the studio lighting equipment. Their was so much of it, flashheads, modifiers, syncs, and so on.

The reason my friends new purchases got my attention is because it reminded me of exactly what I did when I first became interested in studio photography. I had no idea what to buy. I had no idea what company was gonna be worth the money. I believe the first set of studio lights I ever had was from a company called Square Perfect. Now square perfect lighting did work for me. However, you could definitely tell it wasn’t the top of the line quality.

Over time, I must have wasted close to a thousand dollars on studio equipment I didn’t need. Finally I got smart and started asking successful photographers what equipment they used. Most of the photographers I wrote to didn’t answer. However one of them finally did. What did they tell me to buy? Alienbees! Now Alienbees arent cheap. But then again they are not ungodly expensive either. Now Alienbees have been around for quite awhile. They have excellent customer service, and they stand by thier products. Also, NO, I dont get any money or any benefits for writing about them. In fact I doubt the company will ever read this entry.

Montage of sexiness

If you’re starting a studio and want a invest your money in studio lighting, Alienbees is one of the best investments you can make.  Now its not the only good photo equipment company out there. Personally i’m not a huge fan of the light stands from Alienbees, and much prefer Manfrotto, Avenger or photoflex brands.

One of these days I really am gonna get off my ass and write some educational entries on the art of boudoir and studio photography. Trouble is I dont think too many people read what I write.

Spirit Molecule

Spirit Molecule

DMT the Spirit Molecule

Abigail had been running. She had taken the spirit molecule from the vagrant. At first she didn’t even know what she had. She could feel it in her bag. It was whispering to her. She could feel it moving. It touched the edge of her consciousness.  Was this real? At the very heart of it, she could feel a presence. She could hear his voice, faint. She could see his image in her dreams, dark, his face full of needles. It couldn’t be real.

Spirit guitar

For as long as she could remember she had been searching. Mystic experiences, LSD, DMT, and the spirit. It was never enough.

Spirit portrait

She never stopped moving. Never stopped searching. A brothel in New Orleans, BDSM in Berlin. Sometimes when she woke up she didn’t know what city she was in.

Spirit crystal portrait

Is this all there was? Had she reached the limits of experience? Their had to be more.

Secret symbols

She tried Wicca. The goddess rejected her. She tried Buddhism, but nirvana eluded her. What else was there? Their had to be something. Another guy bought her a drink. Where was she again? She thought hard. Her last clear memory was an alley in Paris. This didn’t smell like Paris. Was this Morocco? She had hit bottom.

The vagrant

She had heard of the vagrant. They said when nothing was left he would come. You couldn’t find him, he had to find you. She could feel him now. She finished her drink and stepped outside. She saw him outside the Pyramid Gallery. Their eyes locked. She approached. He took out a box, designs seems to melt and form. She couldn’t take her eyes off it.

Hellraiser

She walked away, forgetting about the vagrant. He stared after her with empty eyes. His job was finished. Back in her room she sat down. Fingers tracing patterns. She could feel something traveling. Getting closer. Movement from the mirror. He had came. The light reflected from the pins in his face. She smiled. No more running, no more moving. She had come home.
