Hello, my name is Lauren. I work with almost all media, including pencils, charcoal, paints, and more. But as of right now, i am working on my photography portfolio. I am also a studio photographer for a company called Picture People in Cincinnati.
I'm not new at this whole photography thing, but I'm still learning. I'm great with landscapes, and abstracts and such. But I am interested in expanding my knowledge of shooting with models. I use minimal Photoshop to edit. I don't like tampering too much with photos unless it's getting rid of blotchy parts, or messing with color. That may change in the future, but as for now it's all I have. If you really want something to be completely edited, I can go through a Photoshop Wizard. But only if that is a must and you must pay their fees. Otherwise, I'd prefer to keep things done only by me. If that bothers you, I wouldn't ask to shoot with me.
I am a model myself, so i have the knowledge of poses and things like that. I am always interested in trying new and crazy poses, as I would love to start shooting alternative models. I love models who know how to pose themselves. I'm really laid back and pretty chill about everything. I am always making sure that my models are comfortable with what they are doing, and since i am also a model, if they are confused on what i am wishing them to do, i have the ability to get in there and help them out as well.
I am interested in shooting everything really. The dramatic, darker, natural lighting, and sensual stuff, I am familiar with. But I am interested in learning HIGH FASHION, and Alternative shots. But I am always looking for models who bring something interesting to the table. Gotta fun concept that you want to try it out? LETS TRY IT OUT TOGETHER!
At the moment I don't have a specific place to shoot, but who doesn't love the outdoors (if its nice enough, not fan of snow). Unless there is somewhere in particular the model is wishing to shoot.
If your looking to give me a shot, let me know.
