Last Sunday I shot some floating Lolita photos with Sami Boardman. I needed an emergency Suspended Elegance shoot, due to the fact that I have been lacking content on this site lately. Sami was nice enough to volunteer to help me inject some life back into LAphotoNet.com.
All I've been using for these shoots is my 5D Mark II and 85mm prime lens, and the sun (and a pair of Photographer flip flops).
I always get dirty when I'm in photo mode... there's a reason I dress bad. I always end up sitting or laying on the ground for some reason. Sami kept trying to dust me off.
The location was the wonderful Griffith Park, where most of my floating shoots have taken place. We met up around 4:00 PM, said hi, and we got right down to business. I also brought along lots of helping hands. Floating takes much coordination, and teamwork, and who better to help me than teenagers with nothing to do. (Laura, Marla, and Darwin. Thanks for all the free help)!
The shoot went very quickly. It was maybe a little over an hour long, but it was very productive.
I keep saying this, but I always enjoy shooting with Sami. She has an excellent attitude; she’s creative, and committed (it's always a pleasure! PLUS, I got to meet her Fiance Rob). This is the first shoot of many more upcoming Suspended Elegance series that I will be putting out in May and June. So stay tuned for more floating lolitas, as I get this project back on track. Thanks again to Sami, and everyone else who is supporting me in my goofy ideas.
