This was not shot in a studio, but in a racquetball room. I wanted to evenly light his face for a soft look.

Same person, same pose, two completely different looks, all because of the intensity of the flash:

I wanted a dramatic look but still achieved a glamourous shot by directing her position compared to the light.

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.  ~Pablo Picasso

Here’s to experimenting with lights and faces.  Here’s to trying something new, something out of my comfort zone.  Here’s to learning from what I cannot do.

Thanks for joining this journey!
