I was in Dallas visiting family and decided to slide in one last shoot on the last day of the year. I called up my friend, Jeff Medlin, and set up a shoot with a model I found on ModelMayhem. I didn't have any gear with me other than my camera; Jeff brought one strobe and a speedlight. With these images I decided to use a grid spot and natural light coming in through a window. It's a balance of strobe vs. natural light.
In the shot above you can see a red gel brushing her hair camera left. Natural light on the face camera right. In post I went crazy with the gradient tool.
Collabs with other photographers are fun. No pressure to perform; just have a blast.
