Huh? I apologise Lydia ... I didn't quite understand what you were saying???

At any rate, my offer's genuine ... it would be nice to have a 'souvenir' photo of some of my bows with a model ;) (if that's alright by you and those involved). However, for the sake of safety, I guess I should be around. I'm not quite sure which type of equipment would be suitable since your shoot is a modern twist of an old classic. Do feel free to PM me to let me know what you need.

Hi Deadpoet (and Gravemaid),

I don't mean to intrude or appear to be going off-thread, but yes, 20 minutes seems to be quite tight but MAYBE NOT impossible.

I have done many studio "quickies" conducted in slots of 30 minutes in Australia. The 30 minutes includes my lighting setup and shoots but excludes model's dressing up and makeup (which also appears to be Gravemaid's arrangement). In that 30 minutes, it's possible to shoot 70-100 frames (if the studio lights can handle fairly rapid fire).

However, I realised that to benefit more from such "quickies", photographers should best already have ideas and poses at their fingertips even though models may have be trained. Lesser-experienced photographers or beginners may find such "quickies" harder to do and less beneficial.

However, I'm assuming Gravemaid's target wasn't for newbies.

I'm just sharing my experience.

Thanks for sharing.

The 'setup' I'm refering to here means basic lighting preparation by the photographer himself and as for the model, she'll be in the same outfit (since little red riding hood has no need for other outfits) and the variety of shots will come from the poses and weapons she carries.

Whatever anyone says, 20 minutes to adjust lights and do a shoot is very tight. Assuming a simple 3 lights set up, positioning the lights, measuring the lights, adjusting output etc, takes minimum 3-5 minutes, if you are very good, 7-10 to be more realistic. 10-15 minutes to do the actual shooting. Too tight for me. Sorry

bit disappointed by the looks of the photos that you've posted, the lighting just doesn't scream 'twisted' and your model [is pretty] but doesn't look 'deadly' or 'dangerous', doesnt seem comfortable posing with weapons and costume could've been a bit better...esp the ankh, it's very out of place but dat's just my 2 cents worth

Thanks for your comments. I'll forward it to the photographer who took these photos. He did the arrangements.

Hi Gravemaid,

The model is great, and the costume and props are fantastic, but I think it lack the impact of your theme... A Twisted Little Red Riding Hood.

Most of the photos are shot using only 1 light. 1 light is good to create a more dramatic look, but I think it just not yet there. Need some Photoshop to bring the mood in...

The model was quite tends during the shoot as well, especially can tell from the pose with the 2 axe.

Actually, my hands are little itchy and went to digitized one of the photo to make it more like your theme... I hope you and the photographer who shot it dun mind... I will remove the photo if there is any objection. Just PM me.






Its not very good cos I just rush through the proccess...

Have fun.... Cheers,
Francis Tan.

Hi Gravemaid,

I'm kinda agree with luel & tkp77 on the lack of impact based on the theme. Personally, the punchline here lies in the twist of fairytale character i.e. Little Red Riding Hood. Well the model looks fine in the outfit but however her expressions and postures just did not justified, especially her pair of eyes. it lacked of that "evil killer-look" or gothical sadistic instinct.

If you or the photographer had seen some of the famous oil paintings by renowned fantasy art painter, Boris Vallejo, you'll know what I mean. Here's some sample pictures of his masterpieces.

Well of cuz at this level, post-processing and digital imaging are essential here to enhance the overall appearances and moods of the images, otherwise it's just half-way process.

The above stated is just my 2-cents worth of comment for yr reference only. :)
