Elle and her dad came over to the JCP Home Studio in Albuquerque New Mexico for a social media portrait session. She is going to have her own YouTube Channel in the near future and wanted a variety of different photos for showcasing in social media. We went through five different outfit changes and thus five totally different scenarios! Taekwondo is above!
Elle was good at acting and giving different facial expressions for each scenario I photographed her in. I cannot say I understood exactly what the theme was for this particular shot with the chess board, but her dad set things up so I just had to make sure to get a great photo of it.
I experimented with some new lighting setups during this shoot adding a bare speedlight on the floor behind the subject to create a strong backlight/rim light. I am always trying to make more creative photos for clients with new techniques and new photo gear.
