Portrait Photography Providence RI

I photographed a portrait tonight in Providence RI. This was an interesting photo shoot because I was working with the very talented photographer Brad Smith, and the talented and beautiful photographer Kelly Meyer as a model. Brad and I worked together with Kelly in front of the camera for a change. She’s a pretty good model ha?

This photo was taken right at dusk on a beautifully cloudy day. We put an orange warming filter on the main light which was a soft box (which was set about 6 feet away from Kelly,and I shot with a white balance for tungsten light to match that warming filter which made the background go super blue. Cool effect ha? As you can see there were also 2 speed lights set up about 12 feet away from her on the right and left. I shot with an ISO of 400 on my 85 mm F5 Shutter 1/20th which was slow enough to catch a little movement from her leaving that wonderful dark edge on her left hand side making the image even more dramatic! She looks like Super Woman! I made some minor adjustments in Photoshop but this is pretty close to right out of the camera.

As always click on the photo to see it at the right size!
