Timelaps Edit Jisel Lynn

Studio V Photography: Here is a new video where I do a timelaps Photoshop edit of a photo I shot with Jisel Lynn. This artistic photo was shot with a Sony A7III with a Metabones adapter and a Canon EF 24 - 70mm f2.8 L. Stay tuned this is just a teaser. Full pictorial feature will be published in an upcoming issue of VX2 Magazine. :)

Vlog 100!

Vasko Obscura: OMG I made it to 100 Vlogs that's pretty crazy thinking back on things now. I'm really proud of that fact that I've stuck to it for 100 vlogs. I'm not going to lie there were times when I questioned if this was the best use of my time, but I really enjoyed the process and the learning that came with making YouTube videos. I'm also really greatful to those of you who have commented and sent me emails to let me know that you have found value in the content I share. Thank you. Cheers to another 100 vlogs. In this vlog I give a quick update on the 5 big things happening in my photography world right now. I pre-ordered the Canon EOS R, I changed my name across all social media, I'm using Google more effectively for business and then I tease a little about an upcoming project called VX2TV and a trip to the Dominican Republic with a bunch of models to shoot content for VX2TV. Thanks for watching. I truly appreciate all the growing support from the YouTube community :)

New YouTube Header Image

Vasko Obscura: Inspired by the header photo I made for the new Patreon page I decided it was time to update the Studio V Photography header I had on my YouTube channel. It was getting a bit tied. After three years of just my logo on a grey background it was time for change. I really like the way this new header tells a better story about what I do and how long I’ve been doing it. Obviously I’ve been working as a glamour photographer for a long time and I feel this image does a better job at conveying that thought to the viewer. On the down side the image is a bit busy. Maybe that is a bad thing but for now i’m sticking with it. If you want to check out the YouTube channel hit the link below.

Face Needed for Makeup Video

Vasko Obscura: Face Needed. Myself and videographer Paul Venomous are shooing a makeup tutorial video this Saturday. Looking for a pretty face for the makeup artist to put make up on. My face certainly won't do. lol. After the makeup is on i'll do a quick photo shoot with you to show off the look and i’ll be giving you edited photos from that shoot as well.

The video we’re making is going to be a part of a series of makeup videos for a YouTube channel we are working on building. So you’ll get exposure on our social media as well as get some photo and video content you can post on your social media as well.

Here is the makeup artist’s Instagram so you can see her work: @shebae31

The shoot will be in Hamilton which is a bit far but that’s where the makeup artist lives. Start time is flexible. If you’re interested in the project send me a message. via my webpage or on facebook.

Studio V Photography: I'm super pumped. So close to hitting 3000 subscribers on YouTube. I started this channel for fun not expecting much and now it's really starting to grow. Who wants to help me hit 3k? Click on the link to get to my YouTube channel and subscribe. :) I've been putting a lot of time into growing the channel with exciting new content. Lots of hot models and photography talk. Plus VX2TV is a project on the go which is going to be really hot when it launches. Come find me on YouTube and if you have any questions about the content in the videos leave a comments. I always set time aside every week to get back to comments. 

Update: Passed the 3000 subscriber mark. Thank you guys and gals. Really appreciate it. 

Karlie Vanessa Sal YouTube Edits

Vasko Obscura: Say hello to Karlie Vanessa Sal. She's a sexy Latina model with a strong attitude. Always so much fun to work with. Here are the photos from the YouTube video I posted. My initial creative direction when starting to work on these photos was to make them overexposed with a lot of chromatic aberration. My intention was to take the visual direction towards an over exposed disposable camera look. I've attached one image down below so you can see what I'm talking about. Initially I was happy with the overexposed/washed out look but being the type of person who is always experimenting I asked myself what the pictures would look like with a multiply layer over top. And BOOM I got this darker grittier looking image with deeper richer tones and a strange unique color tone. I loved the look so I applied the changes to all four images. If you have any questions post them on my YouTube videos in the comments and i'll get back to you.

YouTube Videos

The above video is an Instagram story from a photo shoot I did with VX2 Magazine cover model Karli Vanessa Sal earlier this summer. This is just some behind the scenes fun with a super awesome woman. I truly enjoy working with her. As you can see I take photography seriously but I keep my photo shoots lighthearted and fun. If you ask me photo shoots should be about having fun and expressing yourself and not about having a camera stuck in your face.

Here is a timelapse photo edit of a photo I shot with Karli Vanessa Sal earlier in the summer. In this video I talk about a few aspects of the photo edit process. I also drop a teaser about my trip to the Dominican Republic with a bunch of hot glamour models. I intend to bring all my YouTube subscribers with me through a daily vlog of the trip hopefully I don't get distracted. I'm so excited to get down there and shoot a bunch of sexy content.

Jisel Lynn - Deja Vu

Studio V Photography: This is an art piece I call Deja Vu. After watching it you’ll see why. I’m just learning how to use primer and I messed around with the filters for a few hours to create this. I really love the gritty retro-ish mysterious feel to the video. I didn’t get the exact effect I wanted but i’m happy with the results. Hopefully I can keep getting better and more creative with video editing as create more. This was shot with a Sony A7III Metabobes 5th gen adapter and a Canon 24-70mm f2.8L.

If you want to see the behind the scenes vlog where I shot this check out “Sony A7III Video & Photo Test With Canon Lenses Part 2 (Vlog 96)” I made the video age restricted just to be safe. There is a lot of censoring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_Pnf...

Jisel Lynn & Kyla Belle Sample Images

Studio V Photography. Squarespace is limiting me on the size of the file I can upload.  So I've uploaded image below in the larges file size they'll let me upload them at. Just a note because someone thought that the lens had issues because of the chromatic aberration in the shots. That effect was added on purpose and these images are photoshoped. I wanted to give you guys some shots of edited images so you can see what is possible. As I Said in the vlog the Canon lens on the Sony A7III is awesome sharp. Much sharper than than the same lens on my 5DmkIII. If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a message back in the comments on YouTube and i'll get back to you as soon as I can.
 

Back to the YouTube Video. Keep in mind there is an age restriction on the video so I don't know if everybody can see it or if you need a YouTube account to see the video. 

 

Jisel Lynn Bunny Shoot Teaser

Studio V Photography, Toronto glamour Photographer. Hey guys here is a sexy teaser. You're welcome! Get ready this is just a one shot teaser from a shoot I did with the beautiful Jisel Lynn. She's a stunning half Puerto Rican half Indian model. She's kinda the best of both worlds and so much fun to shoot. I met her last year while shooting in Miami and now our paths crossed again up here in Canada. Go figure. The photo set looks really hot and it's going to be featured in an upcoming issue of VX2 Magazine. Stay tuned for that announcement. I can't wait to get these shots out there. I'm sure fans of her work and my work are going to love them. 

There is a behind the scenes story saved on my Instagram. Follow me there to check it out. @Studiov14

Studio V Photography

Studio V Photography. Bikini editorial shot for Diablo Swimwear last summer at Wasega Beach. Love the way this shot came out. The model had to open her blue eyes up to the sun which was directly behind me. It wasn't easy that's for sure but this shot was so worth the effort. That half second she could keep her eyes open and BOOOM! ART! Really love this shot.

Meetup / Burlington Beach Shoot 2018

Alright guys here we go. The date has been set and we're going to meet up and have some photo-shooting-fun. Here is the plan, get a beach, add some photographer and then add some models and boom! Photographer model meetup/photo shoot. This is going to be a bit of a meet and great as well as a photo shoot. The idea is to do some networking as well as shooting. 

Photographers: I've talked to VX2 Magazine and they are cool with accepting submissions from any photographers attending the meet up. Photographers if you want to submit shots to the magazine print out a few model releases and bring them with you to the shoot. You can get the releases here. You can't submit without signed releases. 

Location: Burlington Beach. MAP. Yes there are change rooms, a snack shack and parking lots. It's a long beach so best if you bring some water with you. I'll probably be at the south end of the beach. 
Time & Date: June 23rd, 12 noon till 8pm. 
Wardrobe: Something sexy you'd wear on the beach. Bikinis are ok but jean shorts rolling around in the sand is hotter. right? Wardrobe is up to you. 
Photo Edits: I think it goes without saying but I'm saying it anyways. All photographers who shoot must give the models edits of some sort. The details are up to you but photo shoots have to be a win win for everyone involved. 

Its not mandatory but if you want to touch base say hi and let me know you're coming or if you have any questions message me here.  

Portrait

Studio V Photography. Here is a new re-edit of an older portrait I shot. I was looking to create a beautiful black and white with rich textures to bring out the cigarette smoke when I had an idea and took the edit in a totally different direction. One of my favorite artists said "Real is what we live unreal is what keeps us alive" I heard him say that when I was 17 years old and it's stuck with me to this day. Really happy with how this came out.
