Behind the Scene (Documenting an Photo Session)

I would like to share a fresh new twist with you, the creation of a photographic story. Would you believe this one happened in 1 1/2 hrs. at the same location. Yes, that’s what I said… all of the photos were taken within 30 yards of each other and shot within an hour and a half.

The circle is the stairwell and the arrows are the spots in the alley where we used natural and synthetic lighting.




I love the way the back light in this image makes you feel like the shadow is coming from a natural light source. I also love the way the shadow supports the composition of the photo. It draws my eye right to her.

In the shot I positioned the back light to shine through the hair. I wanted to create the notion that the sun was still up, right behind her, even though it had a just set.
