Project 52 ... 3

The Shoe Queen of Berkshire...
Catherine likes her shoes. A lot. So there was never going to be any other shot than her with her shoes and these red ones are exceptional!

D200, 17 - 55 f2.8, sb 800, Vivitar 285, Sunpack small flash

This was the first Project 52 shot that used multiple flashes. Again, the setting on the camera are not too important, except that i meter for the ambient light in the room, then under exposed by about two stops. I then added the SB 800 in a softbox to camera left about two feet from Catherine's face and a half or quarter power, I don't remember. The Vivitar 285 had a black straw gridspot firing on the picture (of the same red shoes!) over the bed and the sunpack was snooted on the side of Catherin'es face to give it a bit of a rim light.

This was a fun shot if rather cramped, with tripods everywhere! In a later post I'll show how I did the shoe shot in the background.
