Mini Hotel ~Boudoir Shoot (Cost $40 - $80)

DETAILS


Cost: 75$ I hope that is worth getting up early for :)please send email money to [masked]  (JUNE 19th is the cut off)Please make the password either "Elan" or "Photoshoot". 

Models:  They will be newer models shooting TFCD. How do you all feel about giving the models a CD or Memory stick or Link to a downloadable gallery of the shoot. So that they can learn what poses work well... etc? 
Questions? comments?

********************************************

Just wondering if there is any interest for a second boudoir /hotel shoot? The cost would be less  (maybe using a smaller room or less expensive but still nice hotel) and newer models who are willing to shoot tfcd. Maximum 4 photographers 4 models scheduled 2 at a time.  ***UPDATED *** (8am-11:15pm and 11:30-2pm)
I will be there to assist the new models as a posing coach and stylist. Hair and makeup will be provided to make sure the models look their best. I selected Sunday June 22 . I know this is not much notice but It can work. Please comment ... Thanks Elle

    Sometimes we forget to mention the MUA,
    Lubia was the mua for this one, she really helped putting those finishing touches on the models today.
    If one one you has a link to her business page please post it up here..
    I have her email and phone number, but I forgot to ask for business info..

      I have her card and there is no current site or company name. She is going by her name and there is telephone and email contact infor only.

    Great opportunity to work with knowledgeable, creative people on both sides of the camera. Thank-you Elle and Ian.

    Another 10/10 shoot.....Elle has this figured out...

    Since the models will be ready at 8 am how early can we show up to set up and get situated? I am hoping to be there around 7:15-7:45 (sorry for the wide range... its Sunday morning I make no promises) is that possible?

    June 21, 2014

    • Ian

      don't be in too much of a hurry, there really should not be too much to set up. A light on a stand with a modifier and trigger is about it. It will be tricky to do multiple light setups due to space limitations.
      I may get in trouble for saying this... but models being ready for a TF shoot on a sunday morning at 8 is a lot to ask for.
      We are shooting until 2, that's six hours, lots of time...

      Well said Ian, less is more. I know we'll have an enjoyable productive learning experience.

      June 21, 2014

  • Ian

    Lets make a plan for times.
    I'm up early most everyday, *am works for me...Steve will be there later in the morning..11ish maybe.
    Doug and Ethan what works for you ?
    Elle.... what time will the first model be ready to shoot at ? If things go to plan :-)...

      there wont be room for the seamless, we are using a hotel room so that we have prop's a setting suitable for boudoir, so using seamless to get studio type images defeats the purpose anyhow.

      ok less to move. It's only a 6 foot roll I tack up on a wall.

      June 21, 2014

  • Ian

    I am suggesting that photographers, go looking at boudoir shoots tonight, look at places like 500px.
    Google Sue Bryce.. pay attention to how she shoots women, Look how she makes women look sexy, but not sexual, not objectifying them.
    I am mentioning this because of things I have heard said about the images from the last boudoir shoot. Images from all of the photographers.
    Please take a moment to look at the album from last time, and lets see if we can up our game this time around.

    June 21, 2014

    • Ian

      make sure you get conact info for the models you shoot.
      If you want to bring model releases, that is fine. It is the models choice if they sign them. A model release generall does nothing for the model, it is all about giving a photographer publishing rights. We do not need a release to post images in this group.
      If you look at the top of this page under more/files there is a generic release form.

      'm just writing these points down now, As i often forget on the day of the shoot..

    Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day that payment can be made for this meet up!

    If a spot opens up I can bring 4 strobes, 1 ring flash, and 3 continuous lights and related modifiers if needed. just in case someone with lights cancels.

    June 19, 2014

    • Ian

      triggers and sync cables for the lights were the issue at the last meetup....I will bring my cactus, but i can only find one transmitter...

      June 19, 2014

    • A former member
      A former member

      ok, I'll bring some extra gear. I could see triggers being an issue, I only have 3 pocket wizards so if more than 2 lights are being used I do it with the optical slave. Not ideal, just don't use lights enough to buy more wizards...

      June 20, 2014

  • Laureen (.

    We actually have a rotation of FIVE models in total. 2 are modeling fashion only as they are very new. The other 3 are modeling boudoir. The first 2 models ( 1 fashion and 1 boudoir) will be ready to shoot at 8 AM!
    What time was everyone planning on coming? I'm starting to think that it might be best to have everyone there no later than 9 or 10 rather than doing a split day .

    June 16, 2014

    • Ian

      i liked the original plan, however, you, elle, can see the big picture, better than us. So you should set it up the way think best. If Steve comes in a little later than the rest of us, we can make sure he has lots of shooting time..
      I will bring my lights, enough for one area, 2 strobes and one continuous led, this may be enough. As we did a lot of natural light shots and, we used off camera flash in the hallways and for fill.
      I don't mind having my lights there for the entire shoot. I will sit and visit/coach as others shoot..

      June 17, 2014

    • Laureen (.

      It's up to you guys when you would like to come. There is enough space and models to have every one start early but I won't force you to get out of bed on a Sunday if you like to sleep in!

      June 18, 2014

  • Laureen (.

    I have negotiated with Hotel Elan. We can get the same size room with out the additional late check out fee if we are out of the room by 2pm. I updated the times on the meet up to reflect an earlier check out time. Bright and early at 8am to set up lights !! Ian (and others who thought the room was hard to shoot it ); sorry about the bedroom size thing... I don't think its getting any bigger by the 22nd. We will have to look at it as a fun challenge. I could have taken a room with just a larger bedroom area and no second room but I felt it makes more sense to have multiple shooting areas rather than one big room.

    June 13, 2014

    • Laureen (.

      after getting some of the photos back I can see how that vent is 'annoying' but I think there is a lot to work with in that space.

      June 16, 2014

    • Ian

      looking at Harry's pic's. I learned a little on how to shoot in a small space. This next time will be easier

      June 17, 2014

  • Ian

    I'm back in
    because it looks like rain, and camping in the rain is no fun.
    However if the weather is looking better, and there are people on the waiting list, i may give them a chance to come out..

    June 16, 2014

    • Ian

      and paid.....still prefer am shoot, but again i'm not committed to 8am, I will trade the time works better for someone else..

      1 · June 16, 2014

  • Ian

    i'm out of this one, I have a previous commitment that I totally forgot about, until my wife reminded me last night..

    June 15, 2014

  • Ian

    Sharing the images with the models on a TF shoot is not an option..
    It should be done within 10 days.
    This has always been the way in this group.
    Failure to do this WILL result in removal from our group.
    How you decide to do this is up to you, but arrangements on how to do this should be made before you leave the shoot.
    The host of the meetup role is to keep on top of this.
    The host's is to check with the models to make sure they have received images. If the model has not received images, the host should contact an organizer to deal with the issue, however they see fit.
    I am a good organizer for this, I am heartless, I have no issue at all removing members who don't comply.

    Another issue is model contact info, this is the photographers responsibility. If you forget to get info at an event, you have an issue. The acceptable way to do this. Is to ask one of the other members to pass along your info to the model who will then contact you.

    June 13, 2014

    • Ian

      This meetup is pretty straight forward, its TFCD..

      June 13, 2014

    • Ian

      I sent out an email, maybe you have seen it. Next week i will start going through past albums and making note of who has not been posting, and I will send them a little reminder..But from now on, I think we need to be very strict about this.

      June 13, 2014

  • Ian

    for the 22nd....june 28th is part of the canada day long weekend so i will be away......The cost is fine with me, Sunday's shoot at 110 was a reasonable amount for me, less is always good.... I found the bedroom size at the elan very challenging. hard to say if a challenge is good or bad though..

    June 11, 2014

    • Laureen (.

      i like that idea too... not sure if I want to model or shoot at this one... but if you organize it I will come.

      June 12, 2014

    • Dan

      I'm already booked for almost every weekend in July. At least in August the Waiparous is warm and clear. I'll put some thought into this one. The location I'm thinking of is 160 acres on the river front that is unoccupied and has a locked gate that I have a key for.

      1 · June 12, 2014

  • Dan

    Would love more of these shoots and I'm busy both Sundays :-(

    June 11, 2014

  • Ian

    i have set a limit of 4 photogs plus Elle for a total of five...based on what Elle has written above..

    I would like to suggest people say if they would like the am or the pm shoot..

    I would prefer AM...
