Miami Vice Part 2 (Chilli Rating - Three Chillies)


This is the third and final shoot that I did whilst in Miami.  It also turned out to be my 200th shoot since I started in the fall of 2007

The model is Jenny, she applied to a casting call that I had posted on Model Mayhem.  She has been modeling for just over a year and was looking to work with an experienced photographer to improve her existing portfolio.  She requested a glamour nude shoot.

This was shot in the evening, so unlike the previous two shoots there was no available daylight.  I only had one strobe with me, so all these shots are either just with the one strobe or the strobe and the lights in the room.

These initial shots were taken with the 64" plm which was positioned to the left of Jenny

For the Next 2 shots I wanted to include the bedside lamp that was on the other side of the glass door, so I lowered my F-stop to F4 (lowest for the lens), dropped the shutter speed to 1/50 (about the lowest I'm prepared to handhold at 60mm even with image stabilisation on) and then I increased the ISO until the exposure of the lamp was where I wanted it to be.  Turned out to be ISO 640.  I then adjusted the strobe power to get the correct exposure of Jenny.

For the following set of images I decided to incorporate the bright LED reading lights that were attached to the headboard as they would work great as rim lights and the 2 orange bed side lamps gave a nice warmth to the images.  As with the previous images the ISO had to be high.  And within the following series it ranged from 800-2500.
