Glamour Shots is Hard work!!

Working with tight quarters, small strobes, an assistant, and 1 model.

Umberella softbox.
Shoot through umbrellas
1 Canon 580ex Mii
1 Nikon SB-25
Alien Bees cybersyncs
1 voice activated boom - (AKA Scott)

We shot for almost 2 hours. Before going into this there were already challenges with small spaces. My Canon 17-55 2.8 Is lens saved my life with its wide angle capabilities and super sharpness! We had to rearrange a few small pieces of furniture but nothing major. Of course we put it back where it started, cant be a slob.

We lucked out with the bright red couch that turned out to be a great backdrop. Got some pretty amazing shots, that we were both proud of.

My take away from this is to come prepared with poses and lighting styles on paper or from magazines, go through them one by one and it speeds up the shoot with little guessing.
