I have always wanted to shoot with my lights higher than what the stands limit me to. I got that chance last weekend when I had a boom stand available. I feel pretty good about the outcome. Thanks to Chelsea who prepared by obtaining couture clothing from several different designers.
Above Chelsea is a soft box and behind her is a gridded strobe for separation. She is natural in fashion posing so she felt comfortable striking something fun and strong. A bit of tweaking of chin placement to the light and there it is.
A big shout out to Kate Carroll, one of the best make up artists that I know who worked on Chelsea for this shoot. Heck, she taught me how to do make up and I translated those ideas into Photoshop!
