About the image
A strong beauty shot taken about 10 minutes after sunset. We had shot another look on this model and decided to shoot one more. So we drove back to base, changed her hair, makeup and wardrobe. I had wanted to shoot this just before sunset but we missed it by 15-20 minutes. Sometimes the styling crew takes longer than I want it to, just part of the deal.
Shooting fashion & beauty for many years I have learned it is better to wait for the styling crew to do their work vs. pushing to get the light you want. Sometimes it will work, most of the time someone misses something or the end result is not a great as I want it.
Hair & Makeup is a BIG part of this process and after 30 years of shooting fashion & beauty I understand that there will be delays.
The Gear: Canon digital camera set to 1/320 of a second shutter speed, 320 ISO and a Sigma 85mm lens set to f1.4.
The Light: Open shade about 10 minutes after sunset.
