Emma Sheldon

I know it’s been a while since I posted anything here and also a very long time this blog was down for maintenance. Well..what started off as a simple task to upgrade parts and pieces of few hundred lines of computer code(Voices in my head, ask: computer code?..what are we in the 60s?) that runs in the background to keep this site together, turned out to be a ‘Brobdingnagian’ project and now it’s finally done. Also, did I mention about my laziness and season 6 of ‘Game of Thrones’ this year didn’t help in speeding up things here either? 😉

‘What’s new?’ you might ask. To keep the answer simple(same reason why I used the term computer code), this blog will load faster than it did before. 🙂

Now that’s out of the way, here is a shoot I did sometime mid last year. Yes. I know. I took more than 8-ish months to publish it. We all have those times with messed up priorities and this past year was such times of mine. 🙂

Emma and I worked out this shoot to be on a weekend while she was in town. To give a brief introduction about her, she is a professional dancer from England who was touring the U.S with her troop and I was lucky enough to have few hours of her time to do a shoot. When I read through her profile, I realized she had performed in a few Bollywood movie songs and I couldn’t wait to hear from her about those experiences.

She mentioned she has worked with Katrina Kaif(Yess!! Um!! Gorp. Fnark. Schmegle. 😉 )in the past and several other famous actors/actresses from planet Bollywood. Yes. Based on what I hear, working for Bollywood is just as fascinating as one would imagine or it could just be her amazing British accent that made it all sound so fascinating. I admit, I am a sucker for the British accent . Are you not? 😉

Emma is a beautiful woman and an absolutely spectacular model. She understood my directions for posing and helped reproduce the ideas in my head. I truly enjoyed just how professional she was and I really enjoyed our conversations during the shoot. We did spend the time we had very efficiently, to create some really fantastic images.

Light Setup: One Canon 580 EX II in front from top of her though a Westcott 43 inch Apollo Orb. The second and third(both 580 EX II) from behind her to illuminate the background. In a few pictures, I left the background unlit. I wanted to experiment a little to see how much Emma’s skin tone would stand out and those shots turned out to be my favorites.
All lights triggered wireless-ly with PocketWizard Flex TT5 & Mini TT1 combo.
