This image was shot a long time ago with my first session using my strobes. I used a large softbox with my AB800 and a reflective umbrella with my AB400. I used a video screen for the background on this particular shot, although white paper works just as well.Â I love my Alien Bees.
The light tan gradient was set over the original white background and set to normal layer mode. A new subtle texture layer was set over the entire image and set to color burn. The layer was duplicated and the opacity dropped a little to give it a bit of edgy intensity.
For those that know me, they know I am a BIG family guy. I came from a large family and love being around my family. I am the oldest of 5. My middle sister, Hannah, got married a year ago and moved with her chef husband, Kyle, to Hawaii. I have news regarding them! They are moving home to Kansas City! Here is Happy Hannah as we all know her smiling face (oddly enough, from the same shoot, just different processing). She looks just like my mom. Goodness!
