It’s that time again, in case you haven’t noticed yet we try to get this blog post out every Monday although we usually put it out a day early before we advertise it on facebook to see how many people read it before we advertise it. Also, for those of you who have any ideas what those icons are at the bottom of this and our other blog post, (the DIGG, STUMBLEUPON, ect) feel free to post our article on there, or explain what those are about if you have the time.

This week were not focusing on any one shoot in particular, as we have had so many it would be hard to pick, being busy is great but it sure does mean a lot of time in front of the computer editing! Also, we have been reminding you ladies that the holiday season is coming up fast, and we get many requests for boudoir sessions for holiday gifts. Many ladies choose to have an album or book made, which we do all for you, you can be involved in the design process, or you can leave it entirely up to us, whichever is more convenient for you. It takes time for the books to be made though so that is why we are encouraging you all to get in as early as possible. You can book an appoint here on our website, and we take session prepayment through PayPal.

Another new policy we want to put out is our decision to not give out the high resolution disk. We knew this wasnt going to be a popular decision with our clients and it has been a challenge to implement, but in the interest of moving away from the more beginning or amateurish practices its something we had to do. It really doesnt make sense to have your picture taken with great equipment then for us to color correct and edit for hours on end just for our clients to go get a 35 cent print from Wal-Mart. We have read many articles condemning the practice of giving out the high resolution disk their are many articles out there in the same vein, one only has to google something like, “why is professional photography expensive” to see the many relevant articles out there. It seems the more we study, grow and learn in this field the more we find out things we could have been doing better! Anyway, i’m off the soapbox, here are some of the highlights from this week, let us know what you want to see more of!

As you can see we have got some new blog frames, from over at The Album cafe. Now I am still trying to figure them out, and I about drove myself crazy trying to get them sized correctly although the purchase came with 20 different frames it makes the pictures way to small, but overall i’m satisfied with the purchase. Special thanks to Christine over at Wootness for recommending them! While were on the subject if your interested in photography make sure to check out the Wootness page!


Here is a preview of the second shoot I did with “V”, she kept mentioning this violin she had and after seeing it I knew the shoot was going to be awesome! For those that missed the first shoot I did with her you can check it out here.


We also had the pleasure of having one of our favorite people back in the studio, the one and only Agent “M”! In case your new to the studio Agent “M” is one of the most popular with our viewers, and has been gracing us with her presence for about 3 years. We hadn’t seen her in quite awhile, but we asked her to come in to discuss an upcoming shoot project we had in mind, to which she is going to be the star. This project is going to be one of our most ambitious ones to date, involving shooting on location with Agent “M” and three or four other models, we are still in the research phase of the project but stay tuned because its going to blow your mind! Here are a few shots we took of her at the meeting:

These are the series of shots that have been generating so much conversation between my wife and I recently. We had been planning this shoot for months, but the more we planned, the more concerned we became over the controversial subject matter. We would literally have conversations lasting hours about it.  We personally love them, but we were very concerned they may frighten away potential customers, or cause our existing customers concern especially here in Whidbey Island were their seems to be such a  conservative population.  From the beginning we here at Oni Studio have built a reputation on being different and edgy, we believe there is a market for it since most photographers choose to deal in more traditional subject matters, not that we think that is a bad thing, we know of many photographers in the Oak Harbor area that are very talented, we just choose to deal in the more esoteric areas.  Whichever way it ends up playing out, its an honor to work with Agent “H”. The girl is a true professional and puts an extreme amount of thought, passion, and pure emotion into her shoots. She is a shining example of what happens when a client puts just as much effort into a shoot that we put into it and we think the pictures below express that! Anyway, we would love to hear your thoughts on the issue. We want to know what you think, are the shots in good taste, do they discourage you from shooting with us, ect.  Anyway, that’s all the time we have for this week, we here at Oni Studio have some very large projects on the horizon and some new changes coming up so stay tuned!

    My wife Victoria and I have to keep our skills up just like every other professional, and while we do regular shoots such as family and senior pics, those types of shoots rarely allow us to flex creatively enough to learn new concepts and ideas, hence why we search out projects like this to practice various lighting set ups and new photographic techniques to incorporate into our repertoire.

    The first thing we do is scour the internet for a picture or idea we would either like to recreate or expand upon. Granted recreating another artist work isn’t the most original thing in the world but the process of studying how another artist created something in the absence of them telling you is a great educational experience. For the spider woman shoot I found the picture on the internet and instantly fell in love with it, it was created by a photographer named John Farrar, who is a most phenomenal photographer. Here is the original picture we found:

    After saving the photograph the first phase of the project began, recruitment. Like usual the recruitment process began by posting the photograph on our Oni Studio facebook page and asking for volunteers, the photograph generated many responses, including a KISW rock girl, but for some reason or another I never picked out anyone.

    One day while at work I saw a girl from the side and for just a second a picture of her in a skimpy super hero outfit flashed through my mind, (creepy I know) and I asked her if she was interested. Her name was Kat, and she readily agreed, stating she loved to have her picture taken and always wanted to try a professional shoot. Heres a pic of Kat similar to what I saw that day:

    This phase has pitfalls as well though, once someone has been picked the wife and I move along with other parts of the shoot process such as deciding on lighting and background trusting the model is doing what she needs to do. Sometimes the model will have done nothing claiming she has no idea where to buy outfits, can’t afford outfits, or hasn’t had time, ect. This usually means we have to find a new model. However Kat seemed to take the assignment seriously and not long after our first discussion informed us she was in Burlington shopping for a new outfit, impressive!

    In the meantime we were trying to get availability from Ashley our makeup artist, and I started to sympathize with my wife a bit more. Since this was the first time I had headed a project I was unaware of the challenges that came along with it. First I didn’t have anyone’s number, true I could have gotten it but I have a phobia about saving numbers in my phone, (weird I know) so relied on facebook as my communication tool, which in my opinion was ineffective as Kat and Ashley would message me, and I would lose it, or they would lose my message,

    Anyway, finally after multiple schedule failures we all came together for the shoot, Kat got straight into makeup, here’s a few pics of the process:


    Just sitting down, getting started!!


    This was about an hour into it I think, Kat is finding out this is harder than she thought!


    Last thing is the lips!


    Finally after over two hours of Ashley applying the makeup we are done, in my opinion this is some of Ashley’s finest work, she was very self critical, but everyone in attendance was more than happy!

    We then moved on to the shoot itself, Victoria and I had argued (errrr debated) over the light set up, we wanted to recreate the lighting we saw on the photo, you learn a lot trying to copy lighting, its very exploratory and you pick up new tricks and techniques you can use in paid shoots, however again it’s not very original. This was one of our first attempts:

    Uh oh! Something we didn’t take into account, Kat being nervous in front of the camera! After a bit she really loosened up and started having fun! However, we like for the models to do a little more than have fun, for lack of a better term and especially to be invited back for more projects they have to be able to focus and “bring it” or emotionally connect with the camera and viewer. We think Kat pulled that off in these next few pics:

    Hope you enjoyed our first major blog post, we hope they will get better and better, tune in next time for our next upcoming project, codenamed, “The Kiss” here is the concept photograph by Tanya Chalkin:


    Our next upcoming project, if you’re interested in volunteering contact us for further information, volunteers will receive a high resolution printable disk of the shoot, a chance to work with us again, and our undying gratitude!
