Provocative portfolio shoot with Chey!

in nsfw •  10 days ago

Hey, Steemit. I’m pulling myself away from market watching. Bad habit, especially late at night. Nothing gives me a jolt of adrenaline like watching STEEM, EOS and BitShares skyrocket just as I get in to bed. Not good for the “falling asleep” part. I’m an adrenaline junky, so this craziness just rolls around in my head resulting in my usual 4 - 5 hours of sleep […less depending on how many times I wake up and check my phone]. When I first joined Steemit I wrote a post titled “Am I the only one having stress dreams about Steemit?!”. Almost a year and a half later, and yeah. Still relevant.

Tonight’s photography is a throwback from 2015 when I was hired by a model in my hometown of Scranton, PA. Her name was Chey and she was looking to build her portfolio. I haven’t lived in Northeastern, PA in seven years. I still have family and friends there, so I’m back in town once or twice a year. We found a date that worked for both of us and put it on the calendar. 

Chey had a natural confidence about her modeling. I gathered that she’d shot with a few photographers still in the area and wasn’t impressed with the images she’d received back. This was an opportunity for me to step up and capture her in a strong, provocative and tasteful series of editorial photos. Almost immediately, it was clear we had something. Her camera presence was outstanding and I had a heightened awareness of the natural light pouring in from every window of the apartment.

We shoot a series of photos in the kitchen with sheer curtains that cut the light, creating a soft, golden aura in the room. Chey took excellent direction and we shot another series in the bedroom, slightly darker, with one single yellow rose to offset the dark hardwood floors.

From there, we drove 20 minutes to a friend’s home that allowed us to use his hot tub. As often as possible […and when time permits], I like to shoot a couple locations to give the impression of more than a single shoot. It aides in giving the model’s portfolio the appearance of more than once shoot with the same photographer. This was one of those times. We caught the hot tub location just in the knick of the time as the sun was setting and magic hour light was flooding through the window blinds. Moments photographers dream of.

Yup! I could tell you managed to snag some time during the "golden hour".

That hot tub photo is also my favorite of the bunch, but I think I've mentioned before that I'm a sucker for noir.

Chey does come across as very confident, but she clearly has range since the second photo feels kinda vulnerable to me.

Boner incoming :D

OMG!!!

It is always a difficult thing for me how much time I am to use on Steemit and crypto currencies. It does take away from my drawing work with all the distractions, how are my posts doing? how much is Bitcoin worth now? But it is also a thing about making money - I am not a trader but maybe I ought to do more, comment more on Steemit to promote my posts...

I really have not figured this out yet. In times when I have to work on my commissions and use some time on my comic and free art I really feel that I am not doing enough on promotion (and my rewards do fall to a rather low level... :) which in turn make me use to much time vexation...

Beautiful model and as usual you really get this moody indoor atmosphere. I especially like the last one the blinds enhancing the perspective on her body.

thats the precious girl i'd been looking for..😂

Thanks for sharing @kommienezuspadt

I love women! Great photos! She is hot!

Beautiful photography, beautiful model

Not trying to criticise or anything (just curious) but if she hired you, does that not make the photos her property?
