I've been shooting a lot since I've been back from California, closing in on 5,000 images in the last four months. One of the people I have been shooting with is my new friend Nora featured here.
For this image I used an Elinchrom Quadra with a 27x27" softbox above me and slightly camera left using the sun as a backlight.
For this image I placed the Quadra behind Nora and camera right to act as a back light but then over exposed Nora.
The lighting here was the Quadra with a full cut of CTO on it behind her and camera right to simulate warm afternoon sunlight because it was a dark and rainy day.
All images were shot with a Nikon D300 with a 16-85mm and they were all processed in Adobe Lightroom.
