Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

Lindsey Davidson, Part 1

Posted in art, black and white, model, photography by Jason Gray on November 13, 2011

Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph my friend and fellow photographer, Lindsey Davidson. Lindsey is an aspiring photojournalist, and works primarily in 35mm, black and white (what I shot the part 2 to this post with ~coming soon~). I had a great time working with Miss Davidson, and I appreciate the fact that she really went for it in these images, despite offering that, like me, she is more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it (Lindsey, I don’t think that anyone can tell).

All Nikon D300 with either Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G, or Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens.

    The 3rd is my fav. I had a lot of fun with this it was a fun experience, can’t wait to work with you again and see the rest of the shots.

    Wow, very impressed with BOTH of you. Terrific pictures Jason, your use of light (especially in the stairwell, always a hard spot to shoot for me) is amazing.

    Lindsay, so beautiful! Natural model. You need to be in front of the camera just as much as you are behind it.

    Thanks, Jake. Gotta love Nikon’s CLS.

    I agree; I think that Lindsey makes a swell model.

    Thanks, Lindsey.

    Yeah, the blinking issue can be a bit tough, but there are workarounds (and it’s not like you can help it). Now that I know that about you, next time will go a bit easier. So don’t sweat it!

  9. […] Davidson and I have had the opportunity to work with each other on several occasions (1, 2), and I would say that her transition into modeling is now fairly well complete. It is always […]
