Donna Grillo, production assistance by Melissa Diane. The custom leather vest was by designer Sterling Capricio.
Below are my two favorites:
I used strobing, two point lighting, Shot my Nikon D300 tethered in Lightroom so we could review the shots as they were happening. It all took place at dusk when the sky was darker but still had some light left exposing the power transformers in the background.
It was pretty much dark when when we got to this shot which made all the shadows almost go black, very dramatic. I love the way the light shows off her back and catches on the Katana
Below are some behind the scenes shots:
Teddi & Melissa working the hair, makeup and nails
Me prepping the camera, computer & lights
Donna, stand-in extraordinaire
You can also see the finished result on the home page of my
photo site, Vince Gonzales Photography. Look out for The Blue Lynxx Photo Shoot Part 2 which will include behind the scenes video.
