Model - Lauren - Model Mayhem# 154929

This was taken during a photoshoot with a young (hopefully up & coming) model. The day started out sunny and hot but quickly turned just as the Make-up artist was putting on the finishing touches. On the way to the waterfall where we were to have the shoot, it started pouring down sheets of rain and the emergency weather alert came on the radio with a severe Thunderstorm warning. Yipee!! It was pretty crazy. Luckily Eden (Jaxed) was in the car with me to help keep my head on straight. Speaking of straight, Laurens beautifully straightened hair lasted about 5 seconds. But that's okay, because I really like the way it turned out in the end. The path to the waterfall was muddy and the rocks were very slippery. She fell once as did her father. Doh! I'll have more photos from the shoot posted after the challenge ends. I can't wait, since I've been sitting on them for about 3 weeks now. :-)

Anyhoo, that's the story from my very first solo photoshoot. Nothing like starting in chaos, huh. :-)

I borrowed Eden's 50mm f/1.4 lens for this one.

seems maybe a bit too neat imaged, the skin looks very unnatural to me. 6

I'm sorry I might be a little off the topic, but did you model use a ton of lip plumper?

Although I've done this myself on several occasions ... I've heard from a very well know / respected portrait photographer, that you should never shoot into a lady's elbow. Just passing the advice along.
