This video is from a model portfolio session with a lovely model named Melody.
For this session I began chatting with Melody via email to exchange ideas about the type of photos she wanted to capture and also the goals of her session. She really wanted to be able to showcase her physique, her versatility as a model, and also update her portfolio with something fresh and edgy. While she had done a bit of modeling in the past, after some time away from modeling she decided she needed a photo shoot that would give new life and a high fashion look to her book. We decided on 4-5 looks for this.
All of the images in this shoot were lit with Profoto D1 Air 500 Watt strobes. I used a Canon 5D Mark III with either a Canon 24-70mm 2.8 lens or a Canon 70-20mm 2.8 lens.
By varying the styling, lighting, and lens choice I was able to come up with a full new portfolio of looks for Melody. Lets take a look!
