Test shoot with Josh Woodle

Josh Woodle, actor, photographer, and all around creative reached out via instagram a while back and said if I'm ever looking to collaborate or just head out and shoot something and needed a model that he'd love to do it. So I took him up on the offer, as I've had a few things I've been wanting to try and having him there for would be awesome.

We met up in LA's arts district excited to hunt down some great lines, and shadows and see what we could come up with. I gave myself the goal of shooting close, wide, and mid range looks while paying attention to the background lines. I wanted to push myself to use harsh lighting, and to at least get three looks in a short shoot time.

Overall I'm pretty happy with the results, and more importantly I learned a few things which is always a good thing. Big thanks to Josh for being such a willing model! Here's a few images from the shoot.
