Head shots with Robyn Russia
A friend of mine from work does modeling on the side, and recently enlisted my services to do some head shots for her portfolio (and mine!). After some equipment malfunctions, and lots of laughs, we managed to capture a few of the 'traditional' head shots seen in many model, as well as business professional portfolios, before quickly getting sidetracked and heading down a slightly more creative path!
Back lighting and lens flare isn't for everyone, but executed correctly, I have a strong affection for both the softness as well as the depth and drama it can create. I walked away from this shoot a far more well rounded photographer having had limited experience with lighting equipment, even when it does all decide to work properly! And I think we produced some pretty wicked images to showcase what we are both capable of, in front of and behind the lens!
