Pool & Studio shoot – Newspaper backdrop


It was a meetup event by Melbourne. I am glad that I made to the event even with more than one hour driving. The newspaper backdrop was setup at someone’s garage. What a creative and smart idea! Something different, but not too difficult to make it happen. Here is the behind the scene for the photo shoot.

Newspaper Backdrop behind the scene

There were four models and a dozen photographers. Brandi is the youngest among them who is still a freshmen in high school. Her long gold hair is such a treasure for photographers.  Her blue ocean eyes are big and deep, and I believe there are many boys are crazy about her. She is still a young girl, so when some photographer asked her to do some wild facial expression, I did not really like the idea. I love to show her beautiful face, eyes, skins, but mostly to present the true beauty of a teenager girl.

It is a very successful studio shoot and it made my 1.5 hr one-way driving in a central Florida tornado on the way back total worthwhile.

Winter Park Model Shoot with Elizabeth Vasquez
Betty has been to a few of the local Central Florida Models & Photographers group meetings from meetup.com where she met one more looking to add to her portfolio. We met up with Elizabeth Vasquez and her daughter Aaliyah in downtown Winter Park on the beautiful Park Avenue. Look for some separate photos of Aaliyah in a future post! Elizabeth does modeling part time and has a great sense for what to give the camera. Having that experience helped me as a photographer because she had some poses in mind and how to tilt and turn to put her best looks forward. I tried my best to provide feedback to Elizabeth during the shoot and to help h ...
