Ten Oaks Project by Justinvl

I had the pleasure of photographing the Ten Oaks Project’s annual bowl-a-thon fundraiser yesterday where they surpased their fundraising goal.

"The Ten Oaks Project engages and connects children and youth from LGBTQ+ communities through programs and activities rooted in play."

Amanda Fiona by Justinvl

Sometimes going through your back-catalogue is a worthy endeavour. This is a test shot that Amanda assisted me on from May 2012… I like it better than the *actual* photos from the shoot and some of my recent stuff. It’s a reminder to go back to basics sometime.

Strobist info: Elinchrom Ranger Quadra through a beauty dish high at camera right angled down. Triggered with skyports.

Erin White by Justinvl

"Testosterone got you into this, let estrogen get you out."

When your subject is a female tow-truck operator with this on her business card and a few well-placed Muppets tattoos you know you’re going to have a good time, even if the shoot follows a major snowstorm. Unpublished portrait for Ottawa-Woman.

Strobist info: 2 x 1/4 CTS’d Canon 600ex-RT’s through a Westcott 28" Apollo Softbox at camera left. A third 600ex-rt is Justin-clamped to the bumper aimed up for some separation light.

Trevor Ryan’s gone plaid by Justinvl

Personal Trainer and fitness model Trevor Ryan needed a break from being a ripped stud known only for his awesome muscles, so we indulged in some nice window light and pensive thought.

Strobist info: soft overcast clouds at camera left through amorpheous solid silicate. Canon 600ex-RT with sto-fen set to TTL -1 through a 6×3 Westcott scrim Jim at camera right for fill. Triggered with ST-E3-RT

Desirae Profile by Justinvl

Another profile shot of Des from my lighting workshop yesterday here in Ottawa.

Strobist info: Elinchrom Ranger Quadra through an ebay special strip with grid at camera right, high and gobo’d for the bottom 2/3rds, a lastolite trigrip 1-stop diffuser was held in front of that to further soften the light. A white dollar-store V-flat was held at camera left for the faintest bit of fill on her hair.
