Noticing – September 1, 2012

I spent a little time in the studio today with friend and studio partner Steve Brokaw and local model Caroline Loy. Steve has been working hard on improving his already formidable photography skills, and has a large three ring binder full of beautiful portraits to use as a fantastic inspiration book. Steve and I really enjoy working together to flesh out new ideas and Caroline is just fantastic to work with. This image is from the end of our session. We played with some other, more complex setups but I love the simplicity in this one.

Technical details: The lighting for this is pretty simple, it’s an overhead 14″ x 35″ strip box, flagged off a bit from the backdrop to control spill.

And here’s a behind the scenes image of another setup of Steve and Caroline chimping:
