One hour shooting with Hristina

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.

Model: Hristina Parmakova
Photographer: Nikolay Dimitrov
Hair and make-up: as is :-)

Latest photos of Pavlina

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.
