Shoot in Henderson, Nevada

I was scouting locations for our upcoming Creatives Unleashed Workshops with MJ Green and found a veritable treasure trove in Henderson, Nevada.

The time frame was tight since the shoot was late afternoon and the sun just happened to want to go down early. Make-up artist Debra Weite and model Tiffany Ann were on hand to work with us that day. Big thanks to Tiffany Ann  for really capturing the look and emotion I was looking for in these shots.

Here’s a few of my faves…

I used an FJ Westcott 32” shoot through umbrella with a Profoto Acute B and behind the model I used a Profoto Acute B with a 7” wide-angle reflector for a backlight. The strobes were balanced with the ambient light in the valley. It’s really important to have a good assistant on hand with a shoot like this to intermittently run a light meter on the ambient light while you shoot. The light changes so quickly that to constantly be checking your LCD would really throw off the flow of the shoot.

      Hi Dan and thanks for checking out my blog. I usually go to a lot of manufacturer blogs and check out whats going on in the industry from there. The blogs of FJWestcott, Profoto, Pocketwizard, onOne, Nik, PDN and NAPP are good starts.
      Best Regards,
