I've been working on paid client images for too long, but got the chance to work with a very pretty young lady today.

Model: Stephanie
MUA: Janet Harris (Visuelle Artistry)
Hair: model (and NOT my idea)

What? Scott shooting available light! Say it isn't so :biggrin:

Thanks for your comment Sean. That's exactly the 'look' I was going for by dragging the shutter. I want something more than plain seamless in the background, but it shouldn't distract.

Mike, the second shot was done with a combination of ambient window light and a 3x4' softbox with an eggcrate grille. I metered the exposure for the subject with the strobe, then adjusted the shutter speed down until I had the desired background level. The pink hair is real and hopefully will be gone for our next shoot.

Anthony, Gordon, Frank, & Fred; thanks for the kind words. This young lady could have a bright future even at 5'6". Perfect skin and a good head on her shoulders. Believe it or not, she is just 16 years old! She has mom's full support (and mom was of course there for the entire shoot).

Your lighting is simply beautiful on these. That 2nd image is spectacular! She's a very striking young lady.

Thanks Fred, Fritz, and Sharon.

I'm hoping to use this session as a spring board to do more mixed and ambient light work. It doesn't hurt to have beautiful subjects either :biggrin:

Speaking about the subject, I did ZERO skin work on this young lady. PP time was limited to CS3 RAW conversion and cropping. Nice!
