Intensity II

Uploaded: October 24, 2007 04:42:28


This is from a recent senior session. This senior is a dirt bike rider and is going to go to school to be a dirt bike mechanic. So, we wanted to incorporate some of that into his session. There's some really cool shots from this one!

I bounced the hot-shoe mounted flash into a large reflector which was in the same position that a studio KEY light would be in the studio.
