Kailey Sue: Wanna race?

Having not picked up my camera in [what seemed like] ages, Kailey Sue and I planned a last minute, spur of the moment session.


"Where are we going to shoot?," she asked.

"I'll call you in 45 minutes. Be ready to shoot," I texted back.


Within the 45 minutes, I packed the car while pondering some possible locations within Cookeville. After a little bit of wondering around, I stumbled upon on Dogwood Park. I had used Dogwood Park for sessions years ago, but that was before the city expanded the park with this wonderful paved walking area and fountain. It may have been a hastily planned shoot, but I couldn't have asked for better results.


strobist: 1 White Lightning x1600, camera left, diffused by a Mola Demi with stacked Opal and PAD diffusers. 1 White Lighting Ultrazap 1600, camera right, diffused by a Paul C Buff Large Foldable Octabox. 2 Quantaray shoe mount flashes, camera left and right (behind subject, rather high), bare. Monolights triggered via Cybersyncs; shoe mount flashes triggered via optical slaves. Monos powered via Vagabond IIs. A B&W circular polarizer was used. Also, an 86" umbrella was actually shading the subject from the setting sun (90 degrees camera left).
