Lighting in Layers

portraits-14This photo was taken on my first shoot with one of the most amazing models and make up artists I know, the lovely Jenine!

We were shooting in an old abandoned prison, using this dark decayed hallway as a set.  I loved the way her white dress contrasted against the dark hallway, and thought it would add an interesting element to light part of the hallway behind her  and create alternating layers of light and darkness.

Camera Speak:  Probably shot with a Nikon d80, with one hotshoe flash shooting through an umbrella camera left to light Jenine, and another on a stand hidden behind Jenine shooting backward into the hallway.  Lights triggered by pocket wizards.
