Model "SounLeip" (Lee for short) at Lighting Workshop #3, South Puget Sound Photography Studio, Puyallup, Washington, October 12, 2011.

Earlier in our hour of practice, someone set up a light directly behind one of the blonde models, creating a beautiful light surrounding the hair. There's also, of course, a light in front of the model, to the left of the photographer, to fill in the face. All evening I kept waiting for Lee to be available for this light setup, because I wanted to see how it would look with a darker complexioned, darker haired model. I wasn't disappointed! Lee has red highlights dyed into her hair, and the backlight captured these beautifully. I also set up a fan in front of the model, helpfully held by Kathy, the studio owner, to add some motion to the hair. Throw in the beautiful blue feather earring, the great expression, the over-the-shoulder pose, and just a hint of tattoo on the left arm, and this is a favorite photo.
