Ashlee's Bridal Session

About a week ago we shot Ashlee's bridals at Thanksgiving Point. My wonderful assistant, Lindsay, was unable to help this time... so luckily Ashlee's sister was there so I was able to put her to work =) Due to unforeseen circumstances we couldn't start shooting until about 7:30. That's about a full hour later than I would like to shoot. By the time we fired up the camera and started shooting we were in a race against the sun. We were running out of light, fast. Good thing Ashlee's a good sport, she was able so keep up and pose like a champ.

Photo of the Week

I know, I've been slacking a bit with the featured photo each week. But I've been busy shooting and catching up on photoshop work. So I think I have a good enough excuse :)
In the above image we have an oldie but a goodie. The couple are my favorite clients, the baby is one of my favorite subjects to shoot. If you snoop around you may find a few photos of them posted on there. This image was shot about one year ago in their friends backyard off of Carterville Rd.

I won't bore you with how the image was captured, I'll just let you all enjoy a sharp looking portrait of a beautiful family.

Photo of the Week

Why is this image the photo of the week? This week I felt like displaying my take on a traditional portrait. In the above image we have a young lady I shot in the studio last week. The image was captured at f11, 1/125 and iso 200. I use my main light just to her left about 4ft away, the fill at 1/3rd power about 8ft away, a back light on the wall set at minimal power and two hair lights, one about 2ft away behind and one about 2ft above. In photoshop I adjusted the levels and color to my liking and that's it.
