Do not use retouch software in the production of shots for models

Posted by: admin  :  Category: models, Photography

I am now raising the question of how often do you use this software in the production of model shots, my answer is to use it little if any. My shots are not basically retouched as far as the models face, and features, if you are not a good enough photographer in the area of lighting the subject  and composition then you need ot learn how to do it right and not depend on software to pull you out. The exception is in the green screen special effects shots and I use Photoshop to craft and retouch some of the green screen bleed over to can sometimes get, your lighting can be perfect, but still for some reason you can have issues.

How to choose a DSLR camera and other questions asked

I was asked this question on a comment and I tought it was important enough to make it into a article for the blog, so here is the answer:

Taking the composite (“comp card”) /ZED cards to the next level

Posted by: admin  :  Category: models, Photography

The basic Model composite (“comp card”) /ZED cards  have run their course, what the photographer needs to offer is the cut above custom composite (“comp card”) /ZED  card. I have in Photoshop developed a series of templates to give the model the next level of  the custom composite (“comp card”) /ZED cards, to make the model stand out from the crowd, and to make them the cut above. If you do this you will have happy models and they will tell their model friends about the great job you did for them. Notice how the portrait is in the center and on each side is an action shot. Putting the portrait in the center draws the viewers eye to it and he facial qualities which is so important, actions shot on each side show this model is versatile. The old composite (“comp card”) /ZED  card is out, this type of composite custom (“comp card”) /ZED  card is in.

The great software addon file to Photoshop I used to Illustrate my studio lighting set ups

Many times a photographer finds a real jewel to add with his profession tools and techniques, or document his set up from his notes, and what I have discovered is a real jewel to aid in that work. It is a Photoshop PSD file you download open and use the different layers in the file to create your diagram, the results is a very neat, printable, and savable file, one catch I will share with you once you do the diagram, be sure to use the “save as” in Photoshop and rename the file or you will corrupt the original file you downloaded.

This photographer cannot stay away from the train tracks when photographing a model and it always looks really bad

Posted by: admin  :  Category: models, Photography

Rarely do I ever say anything about another photographer style of shooting methods, but in this case  I must say something because it is that bad a style. I really do not know who the photographer is and I do not really care to know, but every time he shoots a model he must take them to a train track to get a few shots of them on it. Now, I love trains I think they are classic, but an empty train track is not a good background for a model, go find a bridge with some lines you can use in your photograph, or even better find a actual train on the track and tell some sort of story with your  photograph, but stop putting the models on an empty train track, it is boring, it rarely make a model look good, and you are wasting the model’s time with you thing about train tracks, do soemthing creatative from now on outside or better yet use green screen technology to do some photographic art for a change.

Advice to Models want to get work do not put this graphic on your page

Posted by: admin  :  Category: models, Photography

As a model you want to project the best image as to can to the photographer who might hire you to work with him. If you do not want to do test for print work, just put it in text like “at this time I am not accepting Test for Print Work”, the last thing you want to is use the graphic below:

https://i2.wp.com/i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo214/britt_freed18/no_tfp1.jpg

This does not put forward a good image of you and really makes a photographer think is this someone I really want to work with, that would put up something like this on their webpage. There are acceptable ways of doing things in this world and this graphic is by no means acceptable, you want to get work be a model do not use it.

Models and Tattoos a bad combination a Photographer’s headache and nightmare

Posted by: admin  :  Category: models, Photography

While a photographer wants to work with everyone the advice with models I give is no tattoos. So why do I say this, many times the customers wants them covered up, and does not want to see them, if we do not know this ahead of time there is an added time in Photoshop to get rid of the tattoos not something a photographer wants to do especially since this job may be one that
is an hourly bid job. Usually if you have tattoos is just to buy a cover up kit (around $25.00 at a makeup shop), but it is best to not have them at all, but really most model who have tattoos do not know how many jobs they lose because they have tattoos, the word is many especially when they can see picture of them on the web, a photographer just does not want to mess with tattoos, and
the problems they create in the final product, and the customer may have put in the specifications for the shoot no tattoos, so you want to be a model and get lots of jobs simple do not get any tattoos.

Simply Looking at How you light you Photographic Subject

Posted by: admin  :  Category: photographic lighting, Photography

One  way to really do an simple exercise in to lighting is to take an object and a light bulb in a holder  next to an object on a table in a totally dark room at night, have you camera on a tripod. Now turn the light on, turn off the lights (camera on auto exposure) in the room now move the light and make notes while taking pictures of how you take pictures. Now leave the light on one position and have a white and silver card move the card around the object at different angles at different locations taking notes, do this with both cards. make good enough note where you can match up the exposure with the shot, now examine your work. You will see how light reflects and how what we call the spectral high lights (reflective properties) are effective by different materials at different angles, now you have a start understanding light.
