Suby In The House   

Had a very interesting weekend, Saturday, Sinem & I assisted that Alakija fella on a shoot for DJ Caise. I did not take my camera along but (Sinem took hers and got some truly lovely lovely images, she is such a naturally talented photographer it's amazing how quickly she picks up things) cause I really only wanted to watch the fella at work. It is always soo interesting watching other photographers work, One tends to learn a lot just by observing.

Even though I did not have my camera, the pull of capturing some frames was just too strong and that Alakija fella graciously allowed me to take some frames with his camera. Thanks bro. Look out for his images from the shoot, trully some awesome dramatic stuff, the boy is good lol. 

I was on a group shoot in Canterbury on Sunday with a bunch of photographers and models, was tired to the max (we got home at about 02:00hrs on Sunday morning) but drove the 115miles to Canterbury cause I promised I would be there, glad I did go, got to observe even more photographers at work.

The image above is from the Canterbury shoot. Lighting was natural light & me holding a reflector as well as taking the shot (not easy with a Mark II I gurantee you). I edited this image 100% in Canon's Digital Professional software, that CD all those who have a Canon SLRs ignored and still have in the Camera box, lol. I added the borders and frame in Photoshop only. Okay I am way too tired and I hope what I have written makes some sense. Have a lovely Monday all.

P.s

Can anyone help with a title for this? To brain dead to think.

Nice shot Suby - great clarity in the eyes. As for the title, how about 'Triflecta' - looks like I can see the reflection of one at the bottom of the frame! smile
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Steve, Liked that title and used :d

Nice pic.As 4 Titles culd go with smthin along lines of "Concentration", she looks like she's concernd as per not annoyed but not happy, so more like tht Can I help you face.
Suby & Sinem: I like that, she had a very interesting face to shoot grin

Thanks Cuz.

Suby
the shot technically looks nice thats for sure, I am not sure of the expression so I can't suggest a title. I play Canon's DP sometimes especially when I shoot raw.
Suby & Sinem: I shoot only in RAW, but from my next shoot, I will be shooting RAW+JPEG, makes my job easier, takes too long to covert to JPEG smile

Suby
The eyes don't look natural to me, but I like the piercing gaze they create.
Suby & Sinem: She has such arresting eyes me thinks but what do I know :d

After reading Martin's comment, I realize that there IS something different about models who do this as a living. I haven't put my finger on it but part of it is the heavy eye make-up and the "hardened" faces, as though there is no way they will let you inside. When Ade and I walked through the Red Light district here in A'dam last week, we talked a bit about "the look" on their faces. It's not exactly the same, perhaps, but there really is something "steeled shut" against the world.

Anyway, just my thoughts that have nothing to do whatsoever with a title!

And after saying all that, you really do a fabulous job, Suby, in converting your pics to B&W. I now work off your tutorial! smile
Suby & Sinem: LOL, Ginnie, She actually had a very open look, I asked her to look fierce without being to scary for this shot and I am glad it sorta comes across that way.

Suby
Title - "If looks could kill...."
smile
Suby & Sinem: Good title smile Thanks
Suby
chiseled features! very nice portrait.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Bridge,

Suby
its fun to view your work after long-ish periods of time, makes me appreciate the constant improvements that you make...perfect portrait, this one is top-notch...
Suby & Sinem: Where have you been hiding yourself?, Thanks for the lovely comment

Suby
Her expression is almost like " you can take my picture but you can't have me". Ginnie is right but my question is, do you guys ( fashion shooters ) ask and want your models to be vacant or would you prefer to have the real person come through ?
Suby & Sinem: LOL, they have to look professional, there is a certain look that they have, if they looked like the girl next do I guess that would not make them special lol

Superb portrait. You have captured something more than the image...there is a projection of "not happy!" coming through.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Ray, glad you like.
