Behind the curtain with The Rhode Island Portrait Project (Katherine Quinn)

Katherine Quinn for The Rhode Island Portrait Project

I photographed Katherine Quinn for the Rhode Island Portrait Project using a 70-200 mm VR Nikon lens on my D700 body set to ISO 800

I used 3 lights a 43″ Octabox set up and camera left about 5′ away from Katherine this was my main light, a smaller soft box set about 15′ back and camera right this light you can see on her neck and cheek. I wanted this light to be very subtle and barely show. And last I used a ring flash to fill in again in a very subtle way some of the shadows on her. The location we chose Fete club in Providence RI has this wonderful art piece which has a spot light on it, as well as having some purple lights on in the club which show as well.  Here is a set up drawing for your dining and dancing pleasure

And also Thank you to Brad Smith for providing me with these set up shots!
