First ever fashion shoot, and I'm lovin it! It's invigorating to jump out of your comfort zone and try something new! You never know what excitement and joy lies ahead.
This image was lit with a einstein 640 through a gridded beauty dish boomed overhead. Fill light was provided by an EXD400 light through a large softbox just behind me. Two striplights are placed on either side of Jade to add a bit of rim light. In post blue light was added entering from the top of the frame to tie in the hat and chair which adds a tranquil, calming feeling to the image.

Put me in Coach!!  One day left!! I've been wanting to create an image like this for some time now.  I had a cancellation and decided to make lemonade out of lemons.  Finally got my lens back after being away for repair for almost a month and half!  I've been shooting everything with either my 85mm or my 17-40.  I was screwed if I needed anything in between but made it work and zoomed with my feet.  This was lit with a couple of gridded strip boxes on either side turned almost all the way up (ab800's).  I had an Einstein 640 through a gridded beauty dish for the key and I filled the shadows with a 64" softbox behind me .

Here's Yesica's pick from the shoot. The more I worked on the image the more I started to really fall in love with it myself! It's hard to have an objective view of your own work but if you can just take a step back and detach for moment, it helps to see more clearly! I worked hard to ensure I didn't overexpose the sky in this image but preserve the shadows in the trees behind them. Lightroom and Photoshop did the rest. Lit with a large Octabox and Einstein 640 camera left with large silver reflector camera right. I had a rim light setup on the left but not sure it's firing in this setup. Having a grid on your rim out in the field does wonders for eliminating flare but you have be dead on with your aim or you'll miss your subject completely! Still I think the Dodge and Burn tool which is in any version of photoshop is the most powerful tool I use on every image! Happy shooting!

A great time with my family at Seacrest Park! Lit with a single x1600 barely camera left. I got lucky and sun dipped behind some clouds for just a while!
