    I'm loving my new pad in downtown LA more and more. The building alone has literally 1000's of locations to use for shoots. Who needs a studio? lol.... I do :( BUT that's in the future... who wants to go in on a studio with me? :p

    Anyways here's my latest set of my friend Clinton. He wanted an old 1920's look, which worked perfectly because my loft building was constructed in 1912. Enough talking, here are the shots.

    Great shots, lighting is awesome. However, with 1 & 2 the model's pose forces my eye to go right to his crotch.

    is #3 two pictures? looks like you extracted him from a picture. was he standing on his left foot and holding his jacket back?

    it's amazing as hell, i'm just trying to figure out how you did it

    C'mon man this is LA, if you don't see someone filming or shooting at least once a day you need to get out more.

    lol wat? Nazi staircase? It is old looking, older than the Nazis.. 1912 :p

    This is the 2nd time this issue has come up. I gotta admit Clinton is my friend, but he throws down some major questionable poses lol.

    I'll post the 2 pictures when I get home from work today. But I've always wanted to do a shot of someone jumping from my building. So I did one shot of him jumping from 2' in the air lol, and another with my camera stretched out on my tripod snapping a pic over the ledge :noes: (ps, i hate heights)

    Yep, my usual composites. He was truly jumping, but from only 2' from a paint bucket we found on the roof. Then clipped him into a shot from beyond the ledge :eek3:
