Photographers

Team based shooting

We will capture pictures of models in teams. If the group is small, then we will shoot in pairs or 1-on-1 with model. If the groups are large, then we will divide accordingly. We are to share time capturing images with one another without exhausting the models. When a photographer shoot for a set time, the others should support them model and the other photographers to help each other capture great images.

Gear to Consider (but not limited to):

1. Reflectors/Zip Disc

2. Speedlights: on light stand and with light softbox or reflector

3. Portable strobes w/ battery pack and Light Shaping Tools

Collecting files and uploading images:

We are planning to collet unedited images for the models from all of the photographers at the end of the shoot. Too many time photographers, including myself at times, have not properly shared photos with the models and have broken the trust that the meetup group has developed.

We will meet back near the studio after the shoot to collect images from all photographers. We will head over to the local Starbucks. Set your cameras to shoot Raw+JPEG (Fine at full size) so the models can have images for their books also. We will only require Large Fine JPEGs. No Raw images unless you can not shoot duel format. Images will be processed and raw files will be deleted once complete. I do not want you images for myself...

 

THEME

We are going for high fashion street photography that would be fit for publications. We are using light and the local environment to create looks that are stunning and engaging. The make up should be bold, but simple. Clean faces with contouring and pops of color on the eyes and lips. Eyes are the central element in the face as lips color may erode. If you can walk with us on the shoot for touch-ups, that would be awesome.

MODELS
This is a street fashion photo shoot and we want to have contemporary attire for this shoot. Models should bring standard model bags/gear and at least on look from your personal collection. We may change the looks on the street but access to changing facilities will not be secured. There will not be any boutique fashions for this shoot. Please bring fashion forward attire along with a standard model kit. Also be prepared to apply your own makeup IF the MUA are not available. We should not have that problem.

Base Attire
Please come with a white/black/plane t-shirt, form-fitting jeans/pants/shorts/tight pants/skirt and the like. Jackets and sleeveless jackets are great too. Do not bring too much! Keep it simple.

Accessories
Please feel free to bring light jewelry, hats, umbrellas and the like. simple is better. Avoid big ear rings if you have small necks. Gloves are great to match with attire also.

Shoes
Bring stylish shoes, boots, sandals and etc. Bring comfortable walking shoes to change into if we walk to location away from studio.

Dresses
If you bring a Dress, come with a high fashion look. I twill be warm out and skin is in. Please moisturize legs, arms and other exposed body parts that does not receive makeup with a non-oil based moisturizer.

Clean Hair and Faces
Please wash and cleanse your hair and faces so that our prep team can have a clean palette to prior to application of makeup and styles. If you are sensitive to any products, please communicate with the Prep Team in advance to application.

      I've attended one of his workshops before and I must say that
      for $25 that's such a great deal. His classes have had plenty of "ah-ha!" moments for both the experienced and novice flash user. Good find Sam.

      July 7, 2013

    • Samuel B.

      Cool beans! Yes, 4 hours for only $25.00 is a steal!

    Question for the group - it's gonna be hot today. What camera bag would you recommend - small over-the-shoulder, rolling or backpack?

    Hello Everyone,

    As we come closer to the shoot date, I will finalize all information tomorrow. Please stay tuned to this board as your point of contact for info and if you need me or any of the organizers, our numbers are above. I will send a final message out before End Of Day Saturday.

    Thanks

  • Pooria K.

    Hi
    I absolutely agree and support that we as photographer should share photos with models and i believe that i have done it but i don't like to share unedited Jpeg version right away after the photo shoot and i think i have many good reason for that.
    So is this new policy that we have to share right after photo shoot ?

    June 27, 2013

    • david s.

      Pooria,
      I understand your concern and agree that you should be able to edit the images and turn over to the models. I do not handle refunds and the manager, Kim is Out of Town as of Today. I would prefer that you come, have a good time, and trust the group to make good on our promise to service you and everyone involved. No one has anything to gain with the un-edited jpegs except the models not receiving images at all. You will gain more from this than the JPEGs going to models and the models want your edits.

      I urge you to come out, have a great shoot, and not worry to much about unedited images. Do what you would normally do with uploading edits to this wall and delivering to models personally.

      June 28, 2013

    • david s.

      I am doing the same thing, and I have gained much more than I gave up over the JPEGs. I hope you understand come out Sunday.

      June 28, 2013

  • My C.

    Damn wish I could sounds like a great experience and an awesome way to build my portfolio. Hopefully next time, keep up the awesome work guys I love this group because it does give artists a great opportunity to gain experience.

  • Daniel R.

    Hello Everyone,

    I have manually cleared the RSVP so that photographers can RSVP and submit payments in the normal fashion. Please, do not be alarmed or offended. When I posted the meetup idea, the details were not figured out. When that information came in, meetup doesn't reset the RSVP to track who has submitted there payments.

    If you have submitted your payments, please use you Paypal receipt to confirm that this is true so that it can be matched against the meetup records. If you have not RSVP'ed with a payment, RSVP as soon as possible so that you can secure your place.

    Models, MUA's and Stylist; you will be added to the confirmation list when you email me with your information. Please send me your email, phone number, Model Mayhem number or Facebook address.

    Thank you for understanding,

    David

    Also, ignore the "Not Attending" if your are confirming or RSVP'ing.
