    So I'm in the middle of a long-term project making surreal, fairy tale-like photos, and as such I'm constantly working with different models. As a part of that, I often trade shooting lots of variety for using their likeness in my art. Today I had a shoot with a very good model, and we got some great stuff. Everything (except the stock images in the final photo - those are shot with all kinds of different stuff) is shot with my a7 and either the Sony Zeiss 35 f/2.8, the Sony Zeiss 55 f/1.8, and the Sony FE 70-200 f/4 G. If you happen to have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer them, and if you have constructive criticism, I'm always open!

    These were all shot in Madison, Wisconsin at the Monona Terrace, around Capital Square, and at Allen Centennial Gardens from about 10:15am through 12:00pm on a very sunny, hot day. All are supplemented by off-camera flash unmodified.

    And this is a working draft of my finished piece. It still needs plenty of tweaking.

    was it just you and the model, or a big group model shoot?

    The one on the steps in front of the red doors stands out as my favorite...

    It was just me. A photographer friend arranged this particular shoot, but I work with models on a pretty frequent basis.

    LOL. Thanks. I think I understand what you mean. I've never been on a group shoot before.

    Love the red door shot. Makes me want to go back to Madison too. I live in Sheboygan, but haven't been to Madison in over 15 years.
