Take a sea foam green couch and put it outside in front of a pink seamless backdrop. This would not have been my first thought BUT I can’t argue with the results! The green and pink play well with Brooklen’s outfit and the pillow she’s holding. Plus who’s really looking anywhere but at that amazing smile, right?

Another of my favorites with @brooklendai from our recent shoot at White Ave Studios. The setup here was kept super simple with Brooklen just positioned in front of this window with the blinds partially open. The light filling in the front is from windows way behind the camera across the room. Using ISO3200 let me pull the exposure for the side facing me which also blew out the background at the same time. It also has the effect of letting some of the light spill over on her around the edges with a soft “glow-y” effect. Of course she finishes it off perfectly with this sideways glance to camera right.

First of many images I’ll be posting from shooting during Ashley Hylbert‘s portrait photography workshop this past weekend. This shot includes the lovely Brooklen Dai Wilkes taken in the upstairs apartment space at Ashley’s White Ave Studio. The main light here is from large windows capturing the early afternoon sun. To camera left is a large silver reflector filling in the shadows.
