Well, this marks my first formal studio session, altogether. I've always been a continuous light guy, but ordered some strobes specifically for this session (and for all sessions hereafter). Unfortunately, my strobes and seamless paper didn't show up until the evening before the shoot (which was early the next morning), so I was left with no practice time, and forced to "learn on the fly". Because of this, I was incredibly nervous during the shoot, and I must have looked it the entire time. This girl was an absolute joy to work with, though, and I managed to loosen up a bit as time went on. So I could certainly use some practice before I really get this all down, but it'll all be uphill from here (I hope!). 1. 2. So this girl was dead-set on doing a selective color shot with a bright rose being held by a black-and-white her. I decided to save a copy and post it here before I ruined it with such a silly, cliche effect (and no offense to anyone who likes selective coloring!). 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. C&C is greatly appreciated - Thanks guys!
