Portrait Project 10-14-2017

 

Today’s #PORTRAITPROJECT will start around 1 p.m. with a person I have waited to photograph for a long time now. I recently had the chance to shoot with her for a lens test and the images are quite amazing. Today I want to photograph her portrait for my project. I also wanted to photograph her with her fiance for my engagement photography work, yet today is not shaping up to be the best day for that.

The hurricanes of recent have the residuals of tropical storm fronts that have slowly made their way to Michigan so it has brought quite a bit of rain this way. I hope to have a break to get outside today, but it does not look promising.

PORTLAND

Sign of Portland, Oregon

The sign that you have arrived in Portland, Oregon

The scene is Portland. If I could describe it in one word it would be wow! The mountain ranges are beautiful and majestic. Scenes so amazing that you would have to stay for at least a week to take in a fraction of the scenery. Or you might have to just live there for a while. But I only had two days to work with to create some amazing images for my Women With Bikes client. Now I wish I had more time.

Having the luck to photograph a friend from high school was not only a nice way to start on my updated session but also a chance to catch up with what was going on with her life, family, loves and businesses.

Jasmine Kesemeyer is was an such an amazing person to work with if you want to call it work. I had the pleasure of an outstanding first test shoot with her Sunday July 16th at 7:45 in the morning. I scheduled early because its all about getting the right light and at times some might not appreciate the time factor. However I was very pleased to see her in the driveway at 7:35 ready to roll. Super attitude and ready to create some magical images.

It was our first shoot and I have to say her movements, natural charm, and expressions still have me wishing I met her a few years ago. It was like a dream come true. I would seriously have to say it was like working with a model from New York. Just so outstanding. I can’t compliment her enough for the short period of time we shot it was magic. I really would like to shoot with her like on a daily basis if I could. The next shoot can not come early enough for me.

The tease photos is just to get you ready for the post page I am setting up for test sessions. In the coming months there will be a specific page for the sessions as I will blog about the experience from start to finish to give my insight on the models I photograph. The evolution will be fun to watch unfold so keep your eyes open for the link that will post on my Facebook business page JSP J Singleton Photo 

Let me know what you think of the images and the models.

When it comes to tests shoots with models, Carly Schneider kicks it up to the next level. In this session I wanted to judge whether the idea of a Handball Court session could be added into my docket of new talent $100 dollar booking sessions. Carly was epic and played to the judgement perfectly. Without a shadow of a doubt these will be added into the photo session booking schedule. Details to come in days!
