Beauteous Claudia

My life has been pretty crazy lately, so many things happening and most unfortunately my blog has taken a backseat - but fear not! It's another post!
This lovely lass is Claudia, another new girl at Priscillas. One of her first shoots! Bright future ahead no doubt.
I've styled again and to be honest I have to admit I hate having to do the styling but considering I plan these things at the last minute I really have little choice. The light was pretty problematic as we were shooting at around 1.30pm with the sun well high in the sky, I didn't have a scrim or assistant to help out so I have to just work with bouncing light off walls and holding the reflector between my teeth and balancing it on my knee. The shot with the yellow swimsuit, red bodysuit I'm using the little flash on top of my camera.... dreadful!
However inconsistent I'm still content with the result.

1. red swimsuit, Somedays Lovin , Jewellery (worn throughout) Diva
2. swimsuit, Somedays Lovin , pink shorts American Apparel
3. hat, vintage. swimsuit, American Apparel
4. shirt, Somedays Lovin, swimsuit, American Apparel
5. swimsuit and mesh bodysuit, American Apparel
6. scarf, Ellery for Sportsgirl. top, Staple

Yay you're back. The picture where she's sitting in the corner of the pool is my fave. She almost looks like a different person!

Haha, you forget how much effort can go into one picture!

I'm still not very good at my camera in Manual so I need to take like a million more pictures than I need adjusting the settings all the time hoping I get a good one! Its difficult to tell what works and what doesn't from the little screen on the back of the camera!

These came out great despite all the stress of being solo. On the styling, I know the feeling about having to style yourself. I've done so for many of my shoots. Although it's a great experience, I would prefer to concentrate on the other essentials of the shoot and leave the styling to someone else. I just wish there were more, good stylists out there. You did what you had to do to make this shoot work and the images speak for themselves. I love when a photographer demonstrates that beautiful images can be created without a crew of 10 and multiple lights. Thanks for sharing. :)
