After our last shoot I had a few additional images in my head that I wanted to take, so Meg came back into the studio to help make them happen. This was also the first time I’ve used Lenszilla – my new Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS – in the studio. After some initial difficulties attaching the tripod plate to the lens we shot the two images shown here. Awesome work by both model and lens.
After previously posing with Slain Austen for one of roller girl images, Hazard came back into the studio with her Ibanez bass to pose for one of my guitarist lightpainting images. After rigging the bass with EL wire and taking that shot we took a backlit shot that I described at the time as awesome and creepy. As Hazard did all of the awesome so I’m pretty sure I’m responsible for the creepy.
It’s always great to work with a new model, and on Monday I had the pleasure of shooting Meg for some of my lightpainting and Lensbaby work. She didn’t laugh too hard when I almost broke my neck tripping over stuff in the dark, handled my long exposure times and cramp-inducing poses with a relaxed attitude and a smile, and even endured the crippling shoes that I cropped out of the final shot. Sorry Meg, but thanks for the awesome results. See you again soon.
It seemed like it was time to include a Zebra in one of these images, so here is Commander Bond jam reffing for Meg 4 Mercy. Studio assistance, and possibly revenge, by Glasgow Roller Girls teammates Fighting Torque and Love Hurts.
Thanks particularly to Meg for holding that pose for *so* long. You’re a star; that’s why you have that star on your helmet panty so often.
Back to a two skater image for this one; Fighting Torque on the right and Love Hurts on the left. Even when she’s blocking, Torque never stops smiling. Studio assistance provided by Glasgow Roller Girls teammates Meg 4 Mercy and Sinéad.
Special thanks to Meg for pointing out that sometimes backwards is better.
The incomparable Jackash skates rings round the competition with her new Poison equipped Vanilla Brass Knuckles. Studio assistance by her Glasgow Roller Girls teammate Meg 4 Mercy.
Part of an ongoing series. Many more to follow.
