Another day of portrait shots and here's one of the delightfully glowing Bianca. I haven't done a black in white for a while, so here's one. Took this while setting up the lights, even without posing, she's a natural. Thanks Bianca. Oh, and if you think the hair is beautiful in balck and white, you should see it in colour. More tomorrow.
Strobist Info: Elinchrom DLite 4's on either side and in front of Bianca about 5 feet away. Also a strobe about 4 feet above her with a white reflector at her feet for a clamshell effect.

Took shots for Jacq with a her new haircut today for her blog. At the end of the shoot, I brought out the ring flash and tried to get some Dave Hill type shots going. It didn't really turn out like I wished it would, but I think it's still a pretty funky picture of Jacq. More tomorrow.
