Modeling Agencies in Michigan

March 14, 2011

Detroit Michigan Commercial Photographers Mary DuPrie So I had another Meetup on Saturday night, Photographing Models with Mary DuPrie Studios.  A smaller group of photographers and we did just this one setup.  I normally have a concept in mind as far as lighting.  I wanted to overexpose the background and use neutral density gels on […]

Hang It Up

November 2, 2010

Detroit Michigan Lingerie Photography by Mary DuPrie Lorena was nice enough to test with my glamour setup today.  I’m still working on the set, lighting and especially the posing.  I made this set up on the spot and I have to say I really like it.  I’m trying to make my sets look like hotel […]

Having a “non-model” client pose in a model way is no easy task.  To get the face and emotion right and then ask to do awkward body positions is hard. Mike is standing with his weight all on the front foot to thrust the body forward, what I call “turtling”.  The camera flattens you out […]

Chelsy, July 2010 Workshop So we were rushing drying times on this background during the workshop.  I used smooth and rough texture plaster for the first time on the canvas which I’ve never tested, let alone on still damp canvas.  You can buy a 2 1/2 gallon container cheap from Home Depot or Loews.  It’s […]

Chelsey,  July 2010 Workshop We ask that a lot in the studio when models show up with cute wardrobe.  Every time Chelsey shows up her suitcase is full of new wardrobe and that fact puts her high on my testing list.  I asked where she got this top and she mentioned the tags were still […]

Andi, July 2010 Workshop I shot Andi for the first time about three weeks ago, a diamond in the rough.  She has a quiet unassuming beauty that I love and gravitate towards.    Andi is totally new to modeling and needs camera time which is really hard to come by in Detroit.   I invited […]

Stripped Bare

July 1, 2010

You just never know what you’re going to get when a new model walks in the door.   I’ve been fooled many times in the past so when I see a new model I don’t form an opinion, the camera decides. I gained this attitude from shooting twins years ago.   Upon first seeing them I decided […]
