Photograph me, miss

Tjaša and me finally found some time when we were both free on wednesday (Mar 18) to take a portrait of her for her book Kiss me, miss!

Zvezdice v Tjašinih očeh

Stars in Tjašas eyes

We knew that we will have a quick session, because we already knew what we wanted. Stars in the eyes and black background. I set the lights, made few adjustments and we quickly got the result we wanted. Finally we made few shots with white background.

Equipment – lights: “Stars in the Eyes” light – 750W (key light), PAR 36 pinspot – 6V 30W (back light), bare bulb 200W (directly behind Tjaša); camera: Nikon D200, 50mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor and Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-D; background: Photoflex LitePanel.

We then went through the photos and picked the best. All I need to do after that was color correction.

I will present final result later. I can only tell you that the publisher was so impressed with the photos that hedecided to publish the photo full page inside the book and ordered another for the cover. Magic stars.
