Can you say “Fitness!”? I think Jaquarius ( @fanatic_jay ) certainly can and this shot from his @model_positive session with Jaylene Hall and me clearly shows it. This isn’t the first image of Jaquarius I’ve posted from this session but I feel it’s one of the most impressive. From that intense stare to those crazy awesome abs this image really screams “Fitness Apparel / Gym Equipment” advert. I have to say I’m both loving this shot and yet hating it just a bit for how it makes me feel about my “one ab”. (The phrase 6-pack vs 2 liter comes to mind) 🙂

The awesome Jaylene Hall from Model Positive was in the studio this past weekend with this killer dress. The thing is, she and I didn’t plan on shooting at this time but we ended up with some time to kill and she had this dress in her car. Worked out pretty well I’d say!

Ruta’s here demonstrating how, in lighting, less can be more with this shot from Ashley Hylbert’s workshop earlier this year. Lighting (sun) is from overhead and behind the white wall (foam board) with just a bit of fill coming from camera left. Even with her wearing a white top, her hair frames her face and her connection to something out of the frame makes you wonder what she sees.
