Studio Portraiture - Carmen Johnson - FYT Productions / by Christian O'Grady

Christian and I had the privilege of working with Carmen just recently when she was in town from Los Angeles visiting family for the holidays.  She is so natural in front of the camera she made our job very easy. Christian put together two different lighting setups in studio and we shared the same lighting but took on different angles to achieve varied looks. For the last look we went outside to a nearby club parking lot and shot with a makeshift lighting rig fashioned from an old photographers light strip with new tungsten LED bulbs. Then we white balanced the Canon 5D Mark III to tungsten to really bring out the blue in the background. #FYT
