New Blood: Tanya Barad

I love our “New Blood” shoots. I get to meet and work with 3 new models in one evening and I’m rarely disappointed with the models that I’ve selected from the many who answer my casting calls.

This is Tanya Barad. She’s an incredible mixture of Iranian, Spanish and lots more and has a great look, I think.

Playing With Textures

I was giving someone some one-to-one Photoshop training a week or so ago and in order to demonstrate the versatility of the Layers function, I played around with a recent image of Rosa Brighid from the FotofiliaNude in the Urban Landscape” shoot, adding a texture that I downloaded from the brilliant “Skeletal Mess” a couple of years ago.

New Model Talent: Megan Jaye

Okay, so she might not be new to regular readers of this ‘ere blog but the beautiful Megan Jaye appeared at Fotofilia for her first group shoot (the “New Blood” Studio Evening) this week and proved to be another great success with all present.

We began with some very upbeat retro shots to reflect Megan’s 50’s style dress before moving onto some more serious stuff (still making the most of those amazing shoulders).

I’ll post more shortly, but for now here’s a behind-the-scenes shot of Megan posing for my group…
