Fashion/Fit Model--Marilyn Bautista
The above photo is from a shoot on December 22, with Marilyn. She was great to work with!
It turns out that one of two Einstein 640ws strobes that I recently purchased has a manufacturer defect:/ I thought that I had used both strobes but I guess not. I never hooked both of them up at the same time--silly me. So on the day of the shoot--guess what, only one strobe was working--my plans were out the window. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.
I learned a lot from this shoot, as I have from all of my shoots. I really appreciate those who have helped me. I only get better with practice and I am doing that as much as I can...I will succeed!! I will become the photographer that I want to be ;)
Often it is the simplest things that snag an otherwise good shoot e.g. the improper placement of a refector stand which bounces light correctly but the stand casts a shadow from a rim, which you don't notice til after the shoot :( Therefore, I am going to shoot tethered on my next studio shoot, which will give me a better review and analysis during the shoot.
I have so much too learn. Thankfully, I have been blessed with wonderful people that donate their time modeling for me. Sure, they expect great photos in return, and I do everything in my power to meet those expectations. If not well we'll do it over:)
