Ellen was a model for a studio workshop I was teaching at Studio Boise. I didn't get to shoot her much because I was teaching and the students get more shooting time. But I knew I wanted to shoot her in a non-educational environment. We met up to do this shoot because majority of my work is in color (actually all of it) and I wanted to practice my black and white shooting. As I edited them you can see they start in B&W and then old habits kicked in and they turned into color. Can't help it.
...and here's the color edits I mentioned...
Equipment used: Nikon D810, Nikkor 50mm 1.4, beauty dish, softbox with grids, gold reflector
