i recently revisited a few images from a session i did with a friend Olivia. we spent an few minutes at a workshop i was teaching working with a very simple lighting setup. a single, large softbox over head and close to the wall where Olivia was posing. when i went to finish these images, i started to play with a much lower-contrast look than i’m normally accustomed. and i was really thrilled with how well this look conveyed the emotions of her poses.
