Pick your models and your shots – So you are just starting out and want to take some photos of people. Then you decide that the people you want to take photos of might or might not be wearing more than their birthday suit… well it is time to make some real decisions in your photo career and in turn about what and how you use your images.  Or let's put it this way – DO NOT GET BLINDED BY NUDITY – There is more there than just seeing a model get naked, you actually need to take some great photos… In todays world of social media, sexy is fine, but nudity in most cases is not. So make sure you take the time before each shoot to make a list on paper or in your head of the shots you need to get in the time you have your model. Nudity in many cases will chase away some of the best models you might work with. Understand your market and those that you will use to make your mark. This includes models you will hire… The best and sexiest bikini and lingerie models that will make your portfolio truly […]

SADLY THEY WERE ALL THE WRONG SHOTS FOR WHAT I NEED NOW! now years later and when […]

Sneaking in a quick re-edit before working the rest of the weekend
From way back in 2003 on one of the islands of Belize… man that was a long time ago.. What do you all think? Too much? Too crazy? Lighting too strange? Too much going on? Do you care? #glamour   #belize   #glamourphotography   This post has been reshared 1 times on Google+ View this post on Google+

Well – this week has almost ended without me taking another new photo, this must change soon, but for the meantime, here is another creation of my past – revisited for 2013 – Enjoy The reason I shoot glamour work started with working with local models that you might not take another look at in the normal day, transforming them into something even they do not recognize is the best part of the hobby for me. No better compliment than hearing – "Is that me?" Nothing wrong with an ego boost here and there… and there is nothing better than a compliment on your own work when you know you have worked hard to produce a good product. Are you on +500px drop over and vote and I can follow your work there also… Interesting in Glamour or Model Photography? Drop a comment below and I will add you to my Glamour Photographer Circle….I share it our from time to time to build that community here. And thanks to +Trey Ratcliff for his latest set of Lightroom Presets that have been a  blast to mess around with.. They are available here:  http://store.stuckincustoms.com/tools/lightroom-presets?acc=c0c7c76d30bd3dcaefc96f40275bdc0a – and are very resonable if you are getting started […]

Well here is my edit for today
As I come to the end of 2012 I am looking for some lost images that needed a lot more TLC than I knew how to give when I first shot them…. this model deserved more than the first run results…. Well they looked good back then but now when i look at them – my eye has changed greatly.. What you you all think? Also seeing many are Lightroom users – does anyone know specifically how Lightroom handles Presets – do they stack? or is each individually run on the original image? #glamour   #glamourphotography   View this post on Google+
