Been a little while since I had all my lights out for a play, been craving it today — so I convinced Sarah to let me shoot her in the face. POW!

You can see it on my flickr too… if you’re into that sort of thing.

Behind The Scenes

Because I know you guys love these sorta shots.

Super Bonus Alternative Shot

I shot this one with my Canon 135mm F/2.0L, ditched the ringflash and upped the power on the softbox to a 1/4th.
