I have been blabbing advice to newnan3 today, and thought I would share a couple of images from a project I am working on. I have known this model for a while now and we embarked on a personal long term project to shoot a single model yet gain as many different unique themes and looks in each set.

Here are just a few from May/June:

D700 - ISO 200 1/250s f/13 - SB-800 bareflash on stand (This shoot has convinced me to get a ND8 filter, this would have been gorgeous at F4)

From the first set, I really like 2 and 6. They really grabbed me.

From the second set, the last image is just wonderful. Spot on.

Keep it up.

Thanks...yep the last image we nailed it I think - that shot alone was worth destroying a one off designer dress lol.

Interesting you picked 2 and 6 also, both very much my favorites of the project. Shot 2, was a test shot, it was taken in a dingy stairwell from above (obviously) and before that we had a single flash on a stand. I had no idea where to put the stand so I pointed it straight up. Marysia wasnt even ready, and that shot was near enough straight out of the camera.

The final image that we are using has been softened a bit, but its amazing that you can pull out a shot from nothing :)

You can find my reasons and justifications for this project here - http://www.cm-photos.co.uk/blog/the-fashion-project/
