For first photoshoots with models I have never worked with, I tend to try to make it easy on them. Few props, no crazy makeup, no being covered in sticky blood or paint, no spraying their faces with milk, no climbing cliffs or standing in glacier streams. This was a first shoot (of what I hope there will be more) but I like the minimal black on black theme here. I think it is rather suiting.
I was my absolute pleasure to hang out with the gorgeous and charming LIsabeth and shoot photos. She was a delight as a model, being a first shoot, I try to let the model dictate the shoot at the beginning, and add difficulty as we go. With Lisa, I should have started on at least medium difficulty. She handled everything thrown at her with grace, beauty and professionalism. I am so looking forward to a second session!
Shot with Canon 6d and mostly 50mm f/1.8. I did pull out the Sony a6000 for a few shots to utilize the 11 frames per second for some hair whipping photos (not displayed here).
