As a Chicago headshot & fashion photographer, you can come up with as many ideas and lighting concepts as you want, but they will all fall short unless you have a good model. Brooke T is not just a good model, she is stunning.
Looking through the camera, I could just tell that the results were going to stand out and be a great addition to my portfolio.
For the image below I used a Profoto 5′ Octabox in a skylight position.
This image and the lead photo were made with a beauty dish.
I wanted to produce a soft natural look to these images, so I decided to use sidelight from a very large source.
