Photoshoot Inspiration

When a model comes to me to re-fresh their portfolio I ask them to search the internet and make a collection of images they find aesthetically pleasing. I ask them to look at other models poses and different categories for example boudoir, fitness, fashion, catalogue and portrait.
Having a collection of images i know the model likes helps make my job a little easier, it also helps the models come up with new posing and outfit ideas.

The picture below is my absolute favourite from Zara’s modelling portfolio, although we got many more fantastic shots…
We used Rosie’s sultry photograph and re-created the location and pose (as well as we could in my spare bedroom)
Our photo was taken with my Canon 5D mark II with my 24-70mm lens, F2.8, 1/100 and i added a little extra flash (pointed at the ceiling) to brighten the room.

Hope you all like! You can find more images from my shoot with Zara on my Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.671536376298132.1073741838.201853276599780&type=1
