Back in December of last year, I had the opportunity to work with Sonia Kanda who's a talented MUA and hairstylist. So when she asked me this year for some more shots this year for her portfolio, I was happy to oblige!
We first started off with a simple muslin black backdrop. This was a simple 2 light setup with a softbox umbrella as key light and then a rim light with an umbrella.
We then moved outside to a nearby park for some shots. As the night got darker, I wanted one more shot by a foot bridge. However, because it was basically pitch black, I used a second bare speedlight to illuminate the bridge itself (and the wooden structure) while using the umbrella softbox as a key light.
