Sisters And Friends In Style!

Updated: Apr 17, 2021

Posing for art or posing for fashion have quite a bit in common. Fundamentally they are both forms of art expressed through the medium of human emotion and human anatomy. Some actors can never be fashion models and some models can never be good actors. But if someone possesses both the acting and posing skills in a film, video or theatre or in front of a camera in a photographer's studio, such an individual would be considered a talent extraordinaire.

Sky Pahl is one of such unique individuals. With an inherent sadness of a heartbroken suitor and yet the posing of a ferocious stallion, Sky is one of industries rare talent. Her command on the dramatic expression and her vibrant yet sophisticated postures made us glitter with joy in our recent photoshoot with her also featuring her immensely talented athelete sister Summer Pahl (Please refer to previous blogs on this site).

With a studio setup of both dramatic effects with highlights and shadows on either Side of her portrait and later with our full blown fashion photoshoot with powered up strobes and umbrellas around her, Sky showed us how expressions are conveyed on set.

I shot the fashion piece with the following specs: sonyalpha 7ii fullframe mirrorlesscamera

For her dramatic acting we had the following setup: sonyalpha 7ii fullframe mirrorlesscamera

The uniqueness of this photoshoot and the talent that we shot has inspired our team to work with similar subjects more but the only issue is that such talent is rarely found. We wish Sky enormous success and hope to collaborate with her soon.

Women and girls in athletics are usually considered to be non-fashion or non-model types. It's very easy to stereotype certain types of people but there are always individuals who take the leap and set new standards for the 'norm'.

Summer Pahl is one of those athletes, at 5'9" tall and a college basketball player both in the USA and in Canada, she is inspiring to become a fashion model. Just like 'age is just a number', our physical appearance is also a stereotype that is set in our heads and under society's influence. Summer is devoid of all those negative thoughts.

In collaborating with Summer Pahl and her sister Sky Pahl for our ongoing NYU Tisch school of the arts at Chaarmz Studio, and also for our fashion piece 'Randomness dePicture' for Chaarmz Magazine, it was a very refreshing experience. As a photographer and publisher Chaarmz Magazine, I have worked with a number of aspiring women and girls for fashion and lifestyle photoshoots. Summer Pahl is one of the finest when it comes to being an athlete as well as a model. During the shoot, she was upbeat and ready to take on the challenge. We did a series of dramatic shots with her in low light and then set the strobes up for a totally opposite look for fashion photoshoot. Summer adopted quickly and although she is still learning to pose high fashion, we found that she has a natural ability to explore and try new things, and also to learn. I was highly impressed that she adopted so quickly.
