Stay Cool In This Heat

21 Jul

I stopped by the beach last night as the sun was going down.

Inspired by the heat wave we are experiencing here in Toronto, here are a couple of images to cool you down

Studio In The Street

11 Jul

On Friday night, my friend and I set out, as we often do, to do some downtown shooting.  As I set out to meet him, I was reminded of a video I watched a while back of Clay Enos shooting portraits in the street.  This gave birth to the idea to set up a studio in the street.

We set up an umbrella with my flash and wireless trigger and a reflector against a wall on the corner of Queen and Peter streets at around 11pm and started stopping people for portraits.

Update – I took a more incognito approach here

Jay McIntyre Photography Street Studio First things First was a couple of test shots on Paul, which grabbed enough attention to start stopping people for their free portraits.

This concept generated a lot of discussion about model release forms and whether or not I need one for this kind of shooting.  There is absolutely no plan to profit from any of these images, they will never be used commercially, so I see no need for a model release form.  The purpose of this shoot was to get some on location lighting practice while also giving people a free portrait that they can use for their social media profile pics and such.  And for me to do something that terrifies me, making myself completely vulnerable to strangers.  That said, if you see yourself in this post and would like the image removed, please let me know and I will take it down. (and email you a copy)

BTW, not everyone who’s image I took is pon the blog.  If you had an image taken by me, please email me for your copy!

The other day I sneak peeked Chris and Bonnie’s engagement session.  Here are a selection of images from our shoot at Centre Island.  They were super fun and very natural, nothing but love for them.
