Finding great images of Candace Smith from our sessions in the Black Wings Studio... or on location around our area, is easy to do. After all, we've remarked that Candace is probably one of the most experienced models in the world... a beauty who is a great collaborator with us... bringing her own interpretation to studio posing... an actress in front of the still camera. She's probably one of the most photographed women in photographic world. We see images of her... shooting with other photographers from all points of the compass. However, I've really had to dig to find images that are acceptable to Facebook. It's challenging to find images that show everything and still show nothing! The great thing about doing that with the images from our sessions with Candace is the percentage of good shots.
All of these are from one day in November 2011. I love going back and looking at the 'contacts'... the thumbnail size pictures... especially when I'm looking for something specific. Seeing them with 'new eyes' opens them up to some different processing than I had originally decided on. One note about her posing on the drawing table... One viewer suggested that I had combined the figure with another shot of the table in Photoshop. I can assure you that she actually did pose balanced on that unstable table for 180 individual poses... and one lighting change. I was amazed at the time at what I was seeing and even more so months later, going back over the session on the computer. Check out a small part of the shoot below. Hope you enjoy our work with Candace. ~ Susana
