“ I had a great time shooting this 'Alphabet' set with Jain Dowe. It was my first time shooting with her, and I believe it is her debut on Zivity. She was wonderful to work with, and as you can see, she's absolutely gorgeous. Her background as a professional dancer (I believe ballet and contemporary) made it seem effortless for her to bend into and hold these pretzel-like poses while I climbed up and down the 10' A-frame ladder to make adjustments to the lights and draping then return to my photo perch. In post-production I did photoshop out a few things (mostly the bases of light stands), but decided to leave the bits of blue background drape in some of the wider shots since I liked the little bits of added color here and there. The added challenge of customizing a shoot to a contest theme turned out to be a lot of fun. I certainly hope I'll have the opportunity to shoot many more sets with her, and I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.”
