This gorgeous girl, Jessica Skeggs, modeled for me for my environmental photoshoot. With the help if Catherine Albert doing the make-up and Maegan Lynch as my lighting assistant my shoot was a success. Here is a quick edit.....

I've been trying to find a magazine that will work with my theme but isn't so cliché as to be "x celebrity is in jail" ... So I found an upcoming magazine called Canadian Corrections that is being published in March. (lucky me!) I'm going to be recreating the cover that they have posted on their website which I will admit is pretty simple, but I've decided that a simple but catchy cover paired with a flashy creative ad in my portfolio will be a perfect combo and they will compliment one another (at least the nice idea in my mind looks fabulous.... hopefully I get it to translate to my portfolio)
Photoshoot tomorrow evening, tonight is photoshoot prep night. :)
Time to make prison cell bars!!

My boyfriend Matt
Damon Boyd modeled for my movie poster photoshoot.
I creepered on the face analizer program that tells you your celebrity look alike, turns out Matt Boyd is a 44% look-alike match to Matt Damon, score. It worked out very nicely for the Bourne Supremacy photoshoot I did. *[note: Matt if you're reading this I used your photograph on a celebrity look-alike site.]
I decided this evening that I really wanted to shoot a portrait... but I didn't have a model. So, it turned into a self portrait photoshoot. It didn't quite have the look I was going for, ideally my set-up would have included another SB900 with a softbox as the main with another flash mounted on the on camera for fill..... but flash mounted to my camera and walls to bounce light is what I had to go with. In the end I did a quick little edit, nothing big, played with colours a bit to kind of match the photo I was basing it off of that had a vintage vibe. If I were to reshoot, I would definitely put more effort into the lighting and hairstyling. All-in-all it was a fun photoshoot in the spur of the moment.
