A Fun shoot with Amanda (NSFW)

One of the great things about working with an experienced model like Amanda is how versatile she can be in front of the lens.  In the first set of images we worked on together for this session, she was sweet, innocent and carried a soft beauty that worked very well with the light and mood. 

When we broke out the bodysuit however, things got steamy and sultry - Amanda's demeanour changed completely.  We modified the lighting setup to darken things down in the background.  Soon after we switched gears altogether and began using a spotlight setup with lots of drama and hard edges.  

This took me a little while to work out, but I found with the light being so high up that it was best for me to get a little higher with the camera.  I grabbed one of the studio ladders and found some new angles I'd not yet worked at Aperture.  

For the final look Amanda donned some crushed velvet and the lighting just took care of the rest.  The punchy colour and intensity in the expressions say everything we wanted to say.  

One final credit -Big thanks to Alex Smyth for doing an amazing job on Makeup for this shoot.
