Thanks John! Indeed they are, mothers seem to be more proud of showing their bumps off these days.
Two lights were used against an infinity backdrop at my client’s home. So I had a large Elinchrom soft box to my right and a 580EX shooting through a white brolley to my left, both about 5 feet way from bump.
I wonder if you can trigger studio lights with an iPhone? Perhaps using the inbuilt flash?
What an excellent portrait and yes, the scare does add interest to the subject. When I did my shot for the charity calendar I posed on my scarred side (I always fell off the bike on my left hand side for some unknown reason!) to make it a talking point...not that anyone took any notice of them!
Dear Lord, that is steep isn't it! I'll find of a cheaper alternative!
