    Did my third shoot in the past two weeks with a black person. This one was a bit weird as I didn't have a studio available so we set up in someone else's living room. The shoot is for some sort of magazine competition.

    Made a couple hundred bucks off the gig so I'm happy. They were nice people but a bit disorganized.

    couple of shots from the session. Unretouched.

    That's cool. I didn't really feel it either. It was hot as hell, cramped, kids running around everywhere and I was starving.

    It aint bad but the blue spill is not flattering at all. and the second is screaming "hey look I am covering my boobs so you get a better veiw of my stomach and thighs" I think that the arm covering the boobs is too forced and the pose is not flatering to her.

    and I know you got some ghetto booty shots and you know this OT.

    Did you say booty?? Yeah, I agree about the blue. It didn't work for me either after I got home and processed the pics. I thought it was a good idea at the time.

    stay classy San Diego!


    yeah, I've had a couple of times where I've had ideas but said "this absolutely has to be in a studio as I just can't see bringing someone into my home for this" :o.

    My wife refused to let me shoot this in my home so I went to theirs. I need to find a studio where I can work. The studio at our production company is available from time to time but I really don't want to do this kind of shit at my office.

    The probably found me on CL. The husband of the makeup artist hired me a couple weeks ago to shoot some shots of him in various outfits. Then his wife called me a couple days ago and said she had a client who needed some shots for some magazine competition.

    I'd hate to see what magazine those pics are going to end up in. Nothing against your skills, of course!

    I'm serious. I love black people. They know what they want and they don't BS you like some white people do. I've had several black friends that I dearly love.

    The makeup artist showed me the magazine. Some of the work in it was really nice. I just didn't have the room to set up my lights the way I wanted to so we went with one large softbox, a bounce card and a speedlight with a blue gel. We also didn't have a nice set.

    I want to do another shoot with this model in a garage full of tools and her wearing nothing but a toolbelt. I need some space where I can really use my lights.

    I would back charge her for ruining your seamless

    would you be willing to post the RAW for pic 1 and 4

    I am wanting to practice some PP stuff as far as cleanup is concerned and her face could use it and removal of the blue spill particulalry where is appears to be super hot and then burning and dodging particulalry with 4 to removing the fat wrinkles and liquify to give her shape.

    I think there is alot of work but that there is an image in there somewhere begging to come out. I cant do it, but it will gvie me some practice and anyone else here on OTAP
