F R E S H . . .

New rap phenomenon JoBoy Fresh commissioned me for some promotional work several months ago.  He then went off on tour across the country.  I was surprised to hear from his camp that he'd been profiled in the September issue of Sister 2 Sister Magazine, which used one of my images for the piece.  I need to go pick that up!

White Hot...

Doris J has become one of my favorite natural hair women to work with.  It's been almost a year since we last had the opportunity to work together, and we were both looking forward to the collaboration.  She has an amazing skin tone, so I thought it would be interesting to have her in white and on a white seamless backdrop.  Here are some of my favorites from the day.

Lighting:
One Norman 600 strobe in 60" octobox @ f/8, high and just right of center;
Two Hensel strobes on the backdrop @ +2 stops from model;
Black flags to keep spill from flaring into camera.
Cameras:
Two Pentax 67s, one loaded with Delta 100, one loaded with Kodak Ektar 100.
