Top Down Shoot with Jaclyn (NSFW)

I wanted to try a different lighting scheme and camera perspective than I normally use. Jaclyn was kind enough to help me out with it even though the space and setup were restrictive to her movements. She worked really hard at posing with the constraints of the frame. She did a great job coming up with compelling poses.

I mounted the camera on a boom and shot straight down. For lighting I used two very large softboxes, gelled with red, horizontally oriented, cross lighting the model at camera left head and camera foot. Many thanks to Sean for helping me with the setup, including the heavy lifting.

Jaclyn and I went through the images and picked out some great images to edit

One of my favourites from the shoot.

We were testing the setup, notice the socks to keep the model warm.
