    Models to exercise flash techniques

    Is it that hard to find willing people with patience to exercice flash techniques or just for me?

    Fortunately my cats are much more cooperative but only when they are half asleep!

    Do you think the yellow cast (I have used half CTO) suits these?

    I happen to love the way you targeted the eyes with the flashes. I do have a hard time getting someone to sit for me to practice with my strobes. I might be ready to go thru the phonebook (smile)

    A mannequinn head is always patient, never complains and never says, "Don't take my picture, I look a mess!"

    However, one problem with many mannequinn heads is that the eyes are painted with catchlights in them. Glass, non-painted eyes would be great!

    Portraits and glamour photography are what I shoot the most. I use modelmayhem to find models that are willing to trade their time for prints or cds. Most of these girls are willing to work with you to get it right. They don't have a lot of experience but they are eager to get good photos for their portfolios. On the flip side of that, since they don't have much experience you have to give them a lot more direction than you would someone with experience. I did a quick search and there are quite a few models listed in Greece. www.modelmayhem.com.... I hope this helps.

    Boy oh boy is that ever right; honestly, it gets a bit depressing at times. I was quite enthralled by Michelle Williams performance in "My Week with Marilyn", but what I didn't appreciate is just how darn good she is as a model ... that's one lady I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph ...
