Charmar Graphics often has the need to test equipment or studio techniques. Some photographs that I have taken before, can be done better. Others can use a different twist, such as a change of background or a different lighting technique. And most of these redos require the help of models. Charmar offers Time for Prints, Portfolios or Pay for models that help on our projects, primarily based of the experience & requirements of the model. Though there are only one or two images of men in the galleries, guys are welcomed to participate as well.
To inquire about how you can help – as a Model, go to the Resources menu link and fill out the Models Information Form. If you are a Make-Up Artist or a Stylist, please fill out the Talent Info Form. Then e-mail me at email@example.com or tm me at 404-803-0913, and I will get right back with you.
Looking forward to helping you build your porfolio!

Lighting from a Beauty Dish or from a Spot source, will usually cause harsh shadow on or behind the subject. This effect is desired in some cases, not so much in others. Make your determination based on the look your are trying to attain.
Either as a part of the shooting process, or in post production in PhotoShop, the additon of Special Effects, be it sutle or bold, add interests to the image.
A private & professional boudoir styled photo session, adds the sensual side to your portfolio. Designed with the collobration between the model & the photographer, Charmar Graphics creates a comfortable environment to capture an exciting set of images.
If you want a square, rectangle or octagonal shape to the catchlight in the eyes, use shoot-through or bounce umbrella technique or use a light box. Furthermore, shadows are significantly more feathered.
Don’t have a fancy studio nor an elaborate environment to shoot in, no worries! Head shots or three-quarter takes, are a breeze. And where the wall meets the floor, doesn’t have to be a big problem.
