Fierce. That’s the word I think of when I think about these girls. They withstood Utah’s freezing temperatures in prom dresses all for the sake of art. Seriously, they were fierce.
This image was taken at the end of Day 2 of the amazing Nichole Van workshop. We spent the afternoon photographing the models with speedlights and strobes and I found a new love. Lighting. Yep, that’s right. This natural light girl has changed her tune. I absolutely loved playing with lights. I had no idea how incredible the results could be by adding a strobe light to the situation.
So when dinner was over and Nichole said we could take her strobes out to play I jumped at the chance. Literally–I actually jumped out of my seat to snag those strobes and the models. This image was taken right at sunset and the sky was seriously that amazing. And the girls are seriously that gorgeous. No retouching done on them whatsoever. I only added Nichole’s soft color pop action, played with the color balance a little, and sharpened for the web.
I have so many more images of these beautiful gals that I can’t wait to post on the blog, so be checking back frequently as I add more of the individual models. And I can’t wait put into action all of the incredible information I absorbed this week. Nichole is truly a gifted artist and teacher and I feel so blessed that I got to be part of such a phenomenal workshop.
