Alexandra: Kapow and Lean

Okay, I need to reboot soon so I'm going to make this quick.

A few updates. Actually I'm going to save this for later since I'm running out of time. Suffice it to say that my post work is speeding up just a little. Maybe 20%

Camera: D3/24-70mm f/2.8G @44mm and @70mm, 1/200th, f/9.0, ISO100

Strobist: AB800 in 40ยบ gridspot from camera upper left.

Model/Wardrobe: Alexandra Mathews

Makeup/Hair: Kelli Zehnder


  1. Love the lighting of the first image in particular. Really makes the contours of her back pop out! Sometimes I catch myself trying to add too many lights to the mix. Seems like keeping it simple sometimes really pays off.

    What is that background material that you are using to get the reflections? (if you don't mind me asking...) really adds a nice complement to the subject.

  2. Hello,

    I am an amateur photographer in the south of France and I just discovered your photographic work.

    It is a true inspiration. the quality is really surprising.



  3. Thanks Philippe!

    Aaron, the material is a tile board from Home Depot. It's just a white board. It's not really that shiny, but the angle of the shot allows the reflection to be captured...
