I had the most amazing time working with the beautiful and talented Natalie this week. You may remember her from a few months back when we first met up at a party. We have been discussing putting together some portfolio work for her and finally had the opportunity to get some amazing images on Tuesday in down-town Pasadena.
I love the crazy washed out lighting on the left side of this image! It just catches my eye! LOVE IT! Natalie was such a great model. I will totally have to use her in the future when getting a group together to shoot! She worked her butt off for 4 hours for me! Anyway, these 2 window shots send me a kind of Scarlett Johansson vibe! When researching for this shoot, I pulled up a ton of images done by SJ and was stoked when the mood of my own pics turned out this way! It was all Natalie. If she decides to follow a path towards Hollywood stardom......she will rock it all the way!
I have to say she defiantly knows how to work the camera. This was with folks passing by and all! they were totally watching us as though we were on some high-end magazine shoot! I think that actually helped us both a bit! I specifically chose this area of Pasadena because of this parking garage that I have seen before. Although parking there on the weekends is free and we payed a crazy weekday working peoples rate.. it was totally worth it. We shot 80% of our images just in and around this structure!
How hot is she here? I really had fun with this wall! It is actually a reflective driving precaution in the parking structure. This made it interesting to get light to the right places without lighting up the funky wall. I was totally growing as an artist and being really random. It pays off to try the unexpected!
These last ones were our final set.. in the dark none the less. Natalie, you are an awesome model in the making! Thanks for working with me. I look forward to next time!
So, tell me how did i do fo rmy first time out in Model land? Should I climb back into my safe world of weddings?
