Cody and the Stairwell of Wonder (4.13.13)

Posted in 2013, Color, Digital, model shoot, Photo Post by William Patrick Butler on April 25, 2013

so, i spent a week up in Memphis this month and, while i was up there, arranged another photoshoot with my good friend (and fellow artist) Cody.

Cody and I have shot together before and we both really liked the results so working together again was just a matter of finding the time and figuring out what we want to shoot.

this time, it was pretty much the all Cody show. she knew the location she wanted to use and the outfit and the theme.

the location was a stairwell in a parking garage in downtown memphis.

the theme we were going for was an Alice In Wonderland type of feel, but without going too overboard with it.

and away we go.

so, when we started off, we started off with just available light. which Cody really liked and preferred.

but i did bring my  Nikon Speedlight SB-600 too, for those times i felt we needed a little more light thrown on the scene.

pulling back to show a little bit more of the scene. i love that this stairwell exists.

but after a few shots with the speedlite, we settled back on just using available light for the rest of the shoot.

and really love this one too.

man, this was a hard shot to get.

i was actually laying down, on the concrete of this stairwell, hoping i wasn’t laying in hobo pee, and i was still having trouble getting low enough for the angle we wanted.

i think we finally nailed it, but it took some work.

this shot, and the one like it that started this post, were shots i really wanted to do and i like how they came out.

still available light, but now i’ve opened the door all the way.

really love that dragonfly necklace Cody wore that day.

and we’ll wrap it up with this shot, which is a pose Cody really wanted and i think it came out great.

as you can imagine, we shot much more than this but i’m trying to get better at self-editing myself so i’m just posting these.

as always, it was a blast shooting with cody and hopefully it won’t be another two years before we can shoot something else again 🙂

have a good one everybody.

see ya next post!
