No no, it is not as if that was all I could say while shooting these photos of Joe – sometimes I said ‘Oh, God!’ instead. His defined, muscled body is amazing piece of art at whatever angle I look at him, he is just a living sculpture!
The red textured wall was a nice background for the photos, but since I could not bring along my studio lamps, I had to come up with some lighting solution.
First I dismantled a floor lamp and tried some complicated choreography to make it work as a sort of a softbox on my flash. Mh, did not quite work out.
Eventually I just bounced flash off of the back of the room at full power. Seemed to be great solution until after about 30 shots my flash overheated and refused to co-operate. Once it had cooled down, we were already hungry and done with the session.
Photos are taken Joe’s place last weekend. Always excited to be able to take photos of him and especially happy for his approval for publishing the photos.
