I needed Abs

Julian Rance Photography 2012
This has been a busy month for me behind the camera, but it was much overdo since I neglected my passion for most of the past year.  Now that I'm committing more time to photography, my creative juices have been flowing and I've been working on new images to show off my skills.  During the Summer Olympics, I saw a Nike ad campaign that inspired me to test my skills and attempt to recreate the images I saw, but first I needed the right model...

Meet Deanelle!  She is a fitness trainer with abs that can form a diamond out of coal.  She was my subject over the weekend as I put forth my best effort to create an image worthy of a shoe or fitness ad.  We also managed worked on proving that fitness models can soften their look for lifestyles work.  We had a great time shooting and have more images coming soon.  

Be sure to visit my Facebook Fan page for updates to Deanelle's album and while you are there, check out more of my work.

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule is a theme created by make-up artist Monique "Mo" Branch.  After working with Monique on several themed shoots, we decided to kick things up a notch and go in a different direction.  Not only did we call on our muse, Erika, but we also decided it was time to place Mo in front of the camera.  With that in mind, Mo decided to focus on contrasting skin tones, but added a unique twist that included flakes of gold and bronzer that created subtle golden highlights on her and Erika.

Pen Tablet vs. a Mouse for Photo Editing

For a little over a year I have been using a Wacom Intuous4 pen tablet to edit my images and absolutely love it.  As a digital photographer, I enjoy the entire creative process from the moment I power up my Nikon D90 to the final clicks in my Apple Aperture software and now that I can remove the restrictions of using a traditional mouse, I'm having more fun with my digital work flow.
