I had a great time photographing Sam outside of Clare, Michigan in mid April. For this shoot we bought a handful of smoke bombs in a variety of colors to use as a background. In the first series of images shot with a red smoke bomb I shot with natural light. For the rest of the images I added three flashes (two as rim lights) and one as a key light all of which being bare bulb. The two behind the scenes shows had a Godox Octabox on the key light. I decided to stick with the harder bare bulbs so I could shoot at a lower power and quicker. I set my cameras camera intervalometer to take an image every 2 seconds while I moved the smoke around Sam with camera set on a tripod and on manual focus. I had a great time working Sam and look forward to working with her again in the future.
