Salty because I missed skating.

I missed skating last night and I’m a little salty about that but having enough energy to be focused on shooting early this morning with Tia was worth it. I was helping out today with photos for Tia’s fashion and food blog Four One Oh!

We ended up in Bolton Hill which is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Baltimore.

We got stopped by the police but it was a friendly encounter.

We got some really nice shots and they will be up on FourOne-Oh.com soon. These shots are from the camera on my iPhone but I shot today with a Nikon D700 and my 85mm f/1.8 which is great for street portrait photography. The lens at f/2.0 is crazy sharp and it blurs distracting backgrounds almost completely.

This was a really fun shoot day. The model Lilly Lightbourn traveled from the big apple to Baltimore to shoot with us. The idea of transplanting NYC models to Baltimore was new for the team and I so everyone was hype. No one really knew what to expect. I was relatively new to fashion photography at the time.

On the day of the shoot sun was beaming into the studio so I decided to ditch the strobe lights and use daylight. We used a piece of white foam board as a reflector. Hair was done by Chicara Johnson which is one of the best celebrity hairstylists in the world. She is very knowledgeable about  her industry. The beautiful makeup was done by Shayna Vanstory. The clothing was provided by Katwalk Boutique.
