whoa! 200+ likes on my facebook page! To celebrate, I decided to make a speed edit video of my favorite light painting photography on Photoshop. This couple of weeks have been crazy! First a road trip down Calgary and living in a hostel, then meeting Renee Robyn fromRenee Robyn Photography, and getting a chance to eat dinner beside her and talk to her for hours about photography and life! Not only that my mpStudio Photography YouTube channel was finally born a few days ago!
There are so much I’d like to write about! But first, LET ME TAKE A SELFIE!!
This session was taken inside a huge sewer pipe that I found on the first snow in Edmonton. At the time the snow just hit, and I was getting desperate because the pipe was getting wet, so I called Micahel up to explore this cool opportunity. After our shoot, I was ready to do this for real… but before I even called anyone up the pipe was taken away the very next day! I guess I should be glad I got to do a shoot here! It was so much fun!
Got an assignment from a Sherwood Park based Tanning Studio to shoot a before and after spray tanning photo shoot for model! Ashley the model actually contacted me herself after seeing some of my work, and i’m totally glad to take on the challenge! Baja Bronze Custom Spray Tan is a very homie studio owned by an extremely nice lady Dani who is also a loving mother. She gave my assistant and I great hospitality during her stay at the studio during our shoot, and in such a short time we have all somehow became friends. We even got Dani’s little girl to help with a few lighting set ups haha.
Ashley is definitely amazing to work with, we had a lot of fun thinking about different ideas and she was super excited about making it happen! Aside from having great skin and being beautiful, Ashley surprises me every frame when she puts in her own style and touch of creativity into the ideas we talked about and we had such a good time! All the photos came out soooo nice!
Ashley had some pretty nice poses, so I thought i’d include all the proofs here. Thanks again to Ashley who let me release the photos for my promotional use. They’re truly some good images I can show off as a strobist photographer!
Had a brrrrrr breezy portrait session today with our beloved UAPC member Joanne! Although the fall breeze came sweeping in and surprised us, we had a warm shoot nonetheless.Joanne is a student in the University of Alberta studying in human ecology and has done a few contests on her own. She has made some pretty sweet dresses and accessories. You can see a short clip from her latest contest for Southgate Mall in Edmonton
We tried a bit of light painting that day too, but it didn’t really go that well, so I stayed behind that night to pin the problem down all by myself! Check it out below!
So this must have taken at least 20 frames to get myself to freeze properly. I’m especially proud of it because I stayed in the cold windy night to do it all by myself till around 3am. I still find a lot of room to test new things out, so I called up a few friends from University of Alberta Photography club. Stay tune for the next post!
