Amazing Portrait of Merunisha Peel
Model: Merunisha Peel
Lighting: Calumet Travelite 750 (lowest power) with 42" octobox at 45-deg up and directly in front of model. Gold reflector 45-deg down and directly in front of model. Calumet Travelite 750 (full power) with softbox behind model pointed at the 16x16' cyc wall.
Definitely my favorite shot from the whole day. We only spent a few minutes doing portraits, but it turned out well. To get the shallow DOF, I turned down the main light as low as it would go, opened up the lens to give the correct exposure, and got as close as possible.
