Today’s photo is by Stephen Vosloo.
“This image was created at the end of a much larger shoot for a book cover that I was working on. We had 10 minutes before the Model had to leave and I asked her if I could take her portrait. The styling and her look was just too perfect to pass up. I placed her in front of a white seamless background and used a large 6ft parabolic umbrella as the key light. Up high pointing down to her at about 45 degrees. The silver parabolic reflector did a great job at high lighting the beautiful texture in her skin. For fill I used a 5ft octa box to the left and slightly behind her. I was careful to feather the light though so that it didn’t hit her directly. Lot’s of time spent in post production, retouching, dodging and burning and making sure that I did not lose any of the natural skin texture.”
