I thought I'd share this video to motivate anyone who hasn't been following the World Cup. This was filmed awhile back by Jim Dziura & Mike Brillantes during a shoot by Ben Watts for Treats! Magazine. The models featured in the video are Audra Marie, Ayla Parker, Heidi Edwards, Lindsey Byard, and Marie-Charlotte Mahul.
I used to post something to My Model Wish List once a week, but I've been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to keep up with it. Anyway, the person being added to the list this week is the beautiful Italian model Bianca Balti. She's been in numerous publications such like Vogue and Esquire and was featured in Playboy France back in 2009 and is currently in the June/July Issue of Playboy US.
Enjoy spectacular results even on the most challenging assignments. The D810 delivers incomparable image quality with its 36.3 Megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4-image processor. 51-point AF with Group-area AF mode allows faster subject acquisition and highly accurate focusing, while extendable ISO coverage from 32 all the way up to ISO 51200 gives unparalleled low light performance. Top it off with Full HD 1080/60p video recording for the ultimate in professional, broadcast quality results.
My cousin sent this link to me a little while ago and I thought I'd share it here. Now I'm not one to give advice on how to pose models, in fact on my shoots I let the models handle the initial poses and I might have them make minor adjustments from there. If they're good professional models they tend to have an idea of what looks natural and comfortable. Anyway, the only advice I would give is to NOT pose your models like this:
Photographer Spotlight - 09.03.2013
Brian Lima is a good friend of mine and one of the photographers whose work first inspired me to really start pursuing photography. I met Brian sometime around 2003 in San Diego when he was photographing my band, he's now based out of Rhode Island. He has a great repertoire of work ranging from amazing concert photography to beautiful landscape images of New Zealand and incredible shots of the Dalai Lama during a once in a lifetime opportunity to follow him around during his most recent visit to the US. His music portfolio includes awesome shots of Bjork, Iggy Pop, U2, Coldplay, Jane's Addiction, Greg Laswell, Radiohead, and so many other great bands and musicians. I hope to one day be half the photographer Brian is. He is also one of the primary reasons I shoot on Nikon cameras, you tend to mimic your inspirations and I've been a big fan of Nikon gear ever since.
