Fun with Spandex—Color

For the second half of my shoot where a model explores nine yards of Spandex (see my previous post), I gelled the lights to add some color. I see other photographers doing this often, and while it’s interesting, I don’t feel it fits my style, so I consider it worth the experiment to have found that out. Still, it was a terrific shoot with a spectacular model, and I think we made some great photos together.

I had an idea to invite a model to my studio without discussing the plan for the shoot beforehand. I surprised him with nine yards of white Spandex stretched horizontally across the set. I asked him to explore the space and the fabric however he wanted, sometimes with a little direction from me. The results exceeded my expectations, and I received so much positive feedback on Instagram that I’m going to expand the concept into a full project. I already have people offering to model.
