This has been my most ambitious photoshoot yet. This is my second time shooting with Edith. We did some outdoor portraits in the past and now that I know how she works, I felt like attempting something more artistic. We met up with a makeup artist, Anabel, to add some more content and texture to our set.
This is the 3rd photoshoot for my 30 Photoshoot Speedlight Challenge.
|This is everyone's favorite photo.|
Anabel and I went to SDSU to meet Edith. We set up in an empty classroom. Everyone brought a friend and it turned into quite an entourage. The fluorescent overhead lighting became a problem because the makeup looked great when we applied the makeup, but not so great when we used external lighting.

|The flourescent overhead lighting makes the makeup look good, just not her face.|

|You can really tell how extreme the makeup is when she is standing next to someone without under the bright lights.|
|You can also see how good my retouching skills are getting.|
This photoshoot was so ambitious. Would you believe that our session was 4 hours long? There were three portfolios to fill with this photoshoot, and I felt the squeeze. This was a good experience for logistics. Just getting everyone together turned out to be a challenge.
I also have quite a few ideas of things i might want and need. For instance, I could definitely have benefitted from a huge softbox and some wireless flash triggers.
