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

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

    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.

    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!

    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!
