Black and White Wednesday - " A Photo Shoot "

Bet you thought it would be of the kiddies again.


This is Miss A. She is...well....gorgeous first of all, as you will see - a senior with an interest in modeling as a possible career. She needed a model's portfolio for her agency and I was looking for a fair eyed senior for my photography portfolio.
(I have more than enough dark eyes - needed some blue to mix it up a bit.)

I'll have all the color shots on my web-site soon but I sure had fun converting some of them to black and white. Either way - my camera loved this girl.

So without further adieu

I give you Miss (gorgeous) A !

I had a great time at this shoot and an equally good time editing some almost 200 (yeah) of the 500 pictures I took.
I think I need to go to bed now.

Gorgeous B&W shots, Wanda!

I totally blame photo editing for my lacking at least 8 hours of sleep every night.

Lisa said...

Stunning, truly!

You did an incredible job at capturing so many expressions, angles and moods!

Your thrill & joy of photography shine right through!!!

Gail said...

One word...stunning!!!! Lovely, every one of them Wanda. Love your creative crops on some of them.

I sent you an email.



Wanda said...

Thanks guys!!! I treasure your comments and will share them with Miss A too. (It's a good thing to know people find you stunning when you're starting off a modeling career.)

How did I edit 200 pics, you asked? Well - I had about 5 different light situations and since I was asked to do no touch-ups for her portfolio pics I made 5 pre-sets in Lightroom for the different lightings and click, click, click. For these b&w's - I sent them to PS and did some re-touching. Truth is - I'm finding PS kind of like my art palette and brushes. Yeah....havin' a little fun with it all.

wanda these photos are amazing. You have such and eye for detail and beauty. you are a true artist

Amy said...

What a gorgeous girl! This shoot will definitely help create a good portfolio for her, and for you! All of the photos have incredible clarity and contrast. I think my favorite is either the lipstick application or the pinstripe hat.

Terri said... goodness! GORGEOUS!!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!! Absolutely STUNNING!!!

Casey said...

OMG! I am in awe... such inspiring and amazing photos!! I love every one. She is beautiful.

Dita said...

Yeah, bringin' up the REAR as usual, it's me...Dita Darling....feeling more like Dita Despicable that I haven't been 'round to my favorite Canadian blog (er, uh, my ONLY Canadian blog!) but yeah....its been...well, its been a BUSY couple of months!

So, what to say that hasn't been are BEYOND AMAZING! First, no question Miss A is gorgeous beyond words but YOU, my dear....the poses...the one with ZiZi was right out of Vogue and the one looking through the plant...pure genius. You have an eye like no if your artwork doesn't prove that to the entire universe...really, really, really special work here, my friend. What a great portfolio builder for BOTH of you!

Bon chance, mon amie..........
