This is my good friend Heidi. I had her over along with the rest of her family to do some family portraits back in January. At the end of the shoot, I wanted to try a strong backlight photo so I had her jump in and I fired a few quick headshots. I love how they turned out!
The key light (an Alien Bees AB-800 w/4′ octobox) is over her right shoulder, and the fill is just a reflector placed almost in front of her. Very dramatic..
