What is it?
Remote modeling is a way for photographers or other artists to work with me from a distant location. We use various technology in order to set up a camera view for either a photoshoot or figure art session. For remote photography, I set up my camera, a Sony a7iii to my laptop using a tether. Sony's Imaging Edge program allows you to take photos using my camera from my laptop. You then control this program through a screen sharing service like Zoom or any you prefer. For other artists that don't need this much technology, we can set up a video chat online through Google Duo or Zoom.
Imaging Edge allows you to change the focus, f stop, iso, white balance, etc like you would with your own camera. You'll see a screen that looks like the back of the camera display and a view of what you're shooting. Prior to a shoot, we should discuss lighting, setting, and concepts so these can be set up before we start, like with any photoshoot. Right now, I am providing photoshoots while I am touring. After the shoot I will send you the raw or jpeg images from our shoot through Dropbox or WeTransfer. Please contact me with any further questions.
For Other Artists:
Simple! Make a Google account. When we've scheduled our session, I'll send you a link to a Google Duo so we can begin our video chat. Prior to our scheduled time, let's discuss poses, lighting, and looks so that can be set up beforehand. This is also a great time to talk about how long I should hold poses and how many poses you are looking for. Please contact me with any further questions.
