This is for the safety of everyone involved, the model and me. I don’t want to have a child stumbling across a barely dressed woman in the wild. Nor do I want some imbecile who thinks they can take advantage of the situation. And the last thing I want is to end up in jail with my model!
Because this shoot was at a Maryland public park, there were several considerations. First, no major equipment. It would be me, my camera, a couple of lenses in my backpack and the model.
We’d also have bug and tick spray, no desire to end up with the perfect shot AND lyme disease!
Also – there would be no nudity.
Glamour photography focuses on the beauty and charm of the model. We usually see it in the style of the old Hollywood Pinups. More of a portrait session than full body, but the lines have blurred.
Maybe we should just call this an outdoor model shoot. Because that way I am not locked into any constraints.
My model for this shoot was Natalie Rose Kirkman. We met up at the park and found a few prime locations to shoot. Because I was dealing with a painful sciatica attack, I wasn’t as nimble as usual.
