Photo of the day: Elizabeth Rose

Elizabeth Rose, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
I took this photo at the South Puget Sound Photography Studio in Puyallup at a photo class focused on various kinds of lighting. For this practice session, we posed Elizabeth, a blonde model with pale skin, in a white dress against a white background, and experimented with various lighting setups to emphasize the curves of her face and body and the texture on her embroidered dress. This image was made with a strong side light and a full-length reflector, with a "flag" set up alongside the lightbox to reduce the amount of light cast on the backdrop. I like the way the photo came out, but I also really like the attitude of the model, and her direct look at the camera.

This image is also featured on the new photo portfolio I'm trying out, at http://thelightisall.zenfolio.com. Check it out!
