In my country they say: “Better later than never”. According to this piece of wisdom, I proudly present you my latest, 5-months old work, with the young Bulgarian model Ivilina Zhozhgova.
The shoot was released in mid-October 2014, but since I never have enough time, I upload the photos some 5 months later.
The main goal of this shoot was to achieve some beautiful photos for Ivilina’s book.

This was a short shooting (approx. 2 hours including all preparations) with the beauty model Diana Stateva (Bulgaria).
The shooting was done in an old stone quarry. I used 2 strobes to achieve this type of lighting. Camera and lens by Nikon.
Flares were added intentionally while shooting, Photoshop used only for skin retouching. NEF files processed in Capture One Pro 7.2

Well, these are some of the best photos from a 3-hours shooting with the young model Dimana Kafedzhieva. This is her first shooting, and she did quite well, considering her 15 years and lack of experience in front of the camera.
She did her hair and make-up, I did the lighting, took and retouched the photos. Enjoy!
Well, please don’t kill the model (or the photographer) – she is just 18 years old and this is her first time behind the camera…
We wanted to obtain some fashion-style photos for the book of Hristina. She wants to be a model, and she could do this, I think.
We’ve had just one hour of shooting, including the time of real shooting and the time needed to change three locations, moving my car and all the lighting equipment. So, this is all I could get for an hour with my Nikon camera, 70-200 lens, two SB flashes and a beginner model.

Hair and make-up: as is :-)
These are 6 photos from my latest 1-hour test shoot with Pavlina Atanassova from VISAGES agency.
I was hoping to get some nice lighting on location, using two SB-800 flashes with remote triggers, but I ended up using one flash with box umbrella hold by the boyfriend of Pavlina, since I was in a hurry and forgot the stand heads in the studio. Using the assistant, I couldn’t rise-up the light high enough to obtain what I needed as light direction. Despite the problem, I was able to obtain some good images. Not what I initially wanted, but quite acceptable.
First three in color. These were shot using the PC Micro Nikkor 85/2.8 – one of my favorite Nikkor lenses.
And three more in B&W. These were shot using the AF-S Nikkor 70-200/2.8G, all at the widest aperture setting, first two at 200mm and the last one at 70mm.
