We got a number of fun photos in the Hermannhoff Vineyards’ wine cellar last Friday with Courtney and Darrin.
The photo last time was mostly about lighting, but this time lighting was only part of the job. On location there was a distracting white sign on the barred door to the left and some equally distracting bits and pieces on the far right. I had a flash on very low power directly behind her and the main light held to the right for the beautiful directional light we see here. Back at the studio I went to work cloning out the distractions to make for a much cleaner area for our bride to inhabit.
I really like the overall contrast between bright subject and dark background.
