The LOVE Project: Erin

Last Tuesday, I had a chance to photograph Erin, who is leaving soon for England and was looking to get some headshots done before she left. We decided to do a few photographs in my indoor studio and then go outside for some full body shots nearby. The sun was setting slowly and around 5 pm it was nice and low above the horizon to prevent those unwanted raccoon-type shadows under the eyes and harsh shadows on the face.

We found a brightly colored wall in my neighborhood, which I knew would be a nice background and make Erin’s images pop. This was the end of the session and Erin was nicely warmed up with facial expressions and being silly with my requests to make noises while she laughed. I’ve always liked seeing models/celebrities in 9 picture collages being silly, quirky and cute. So we’ve made one of Erin.

Shot in natural light with a 50mm 1.4 lens and Mark 5dii body.

Collage created in Picmonkey.

Beauty attracts the eye, but personality captures the heart.
