Amanda is an amazing lady I met through Facebook, yay for social networking!
She is truly a lovely lady, I hope to shoot her again soon. It was really great to have someone let me experiment with different ideas. That can be a tough sell sometimes, “Hey, I have a crazy idea that probably won’t work but I’d appreciate it if you’d let me waste a half hour of your time.” Yeah, doesn’t always go over so well. But in this case, Amanda let me play with my lights and the results were great.
For those of you with interest, these were all shot strobist, the top two with an SB-900 adding some fill though an umbrella and the bottom two with an SB-900 on stand and SB-800 on the ground aiming up-ish, both camera left and flagged to keep spill off the bricks.
