Lauren and Trash the Dress 2

Lauren was so patient while we all tried to channel Joe McNally and figure out how to light her in this concrete box.  I kept trying to get the light softer so the shadows behind her would not be so hard and dark and honestly here I am not sure what the flash set up is, we tried so many different things.  I know Shirley was using a reflector to block the sun from hitting her dress on the camera left as I cropped her out, and possibly the flash/softbox on a stick was coming in on camera right, and at one point we tried the juice diffuser flash laying on the ground in front of her and shooting up through the trigrip diffuser panel...I should remember to take some set up shots to refer to, but I get caught up in the shooting and never think of it.
Nikon D200, 50mm 1.8 at f5.6 and 1/45, ISO 200


  1. I may end up voting for this one as "Blog Shot of the Week." Well done.

  2. Pretty awesome shot Cindi. Great job on proper exposure and I like the framing of her in the box.

  3. The contrast of the dress and the pink sneakers is fabulous! The lighting is great--soft all across the photo. Really good job.

  4. Another really nice shot with interesting composition and great lighting!

    Well done!
