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.
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.
This is definitely one of the best time-lapse videos I've ever seen. Joel Schat does an amazing job at capturing the beauty of nature that is so often overlooked by today's fast paced living. None of the shots he took are quick and easy, they all take time and that time forces one to sit back and relax while enjoying something that's all around us, yet seldom appreciated. It's seeing videos and photography like this that continue to inspire me to get out and see as much of the world as possible. Amazing job Joel and Roadtrippers.com!
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:
Gabriella is another model that I've worked with on a few occasions, but she's such a fantastic model and friend that she has a permanent place on My Model Wish List. I first met her back in April of 2011 and at that point she was the third model I had ever shot. She's based in Budapest, Hungary, but works all over the world and recently appeared on the Playboy website. I always look forward to seeing her new photo sets and can't wait to work with her again. If you're on Facebook you can follow her at www.facebook.com/GabriellaTheModel. I'm hoping to work with her and Katey, another Budapest based model on My Model Wish List, sometime early next year.
Here is some of my past work with Gabriella www.steveslefteye.com/#/gabriella
Olivia Wilde . . . is HOT! Whether you're a guy or girl, photographer or not, I think everyone would want to take pictures of Olivia, which gives her all the more reason to be on My Model Wish List . I know I had seen her before she appeared on House, M.D. but it wasn't until she was on the show that I really began to take notice. She's graced the pages of GQ, Maxim, Cosmo, Glamour and many other publications. I don't really think any of the photographers she's worked with (that I have seen) have done her justice, she actually looks better in all the random natural snapshots I've seen of her. I think the photographers she's shot with have fallen back on bad habits of over editing instead of just capturing her natural good looks. I hope I'll somehow get a chance to shoot with her, even if that were to happen, she would still remain on My Model Wish List.
Sasha Grey . . . she's different from the other girls you'll find in My Model Wish List. I've done shoots with a Playboy model, a Penthouse model and a European porn star before, so shooting someone from that industry wouldn't necessarily be something new for me, but there's something that sets Sasha apart from those other models. It's probably because she seems like a bad ass that just doesn't give a fuck about what you think and there's something really sexy about that, not to mention she's extremely intellectual and well spoken which makes her that much more attractive. Awhile back she released her own book titled Neü Sex in which she gets behind the camera and documents her own life, I haven't checked it out yet, but I am interested in picking up a copy.
Sasha, if you stumble upon this post and want to shoot, send me an e-mail!
