  1. Fascinating capture. Not the typical portrait. Very strong.

    • Thank you for saying so. I thought it was pretty arresting, too. What grabs me, beside the hair over Becca’s face, is the triple catchlight. There was a beauty dish making the highest catchlight, then a reflector making the camera left one, and then a mirror making the perfect bounce of the beauty dish. I’d handed that mirror to her to check her lipstick, and then noticed how nicely it was lighting her with the modeling light, so we just left it in her hands while she looked up from it to me.

      • I went back and looked at the image again and I agree. The light on her face adds to the rather fierce impression. Nicely put together and composed. My complements to Becca.
