While visiting Traverse City, my family all pitched in helping me build a homemade light. My mother was the architect, my brother the mathematician making sure everything was measured correct, and my father the wiring genius. It’s been awhile since we have all come together as a whole to work on one project, so it was a fun bonding experience, and the light we produced, amazing!
It doesn’t look very professional, but the images that it produces, are amazing, I am so exited to begin incorporating this into more of my daily shoots! Below is the light used in it’s first ever shoot with new model Courtney Russ last night and the outcome image!
Family Building: We were all very deep into what we were doing…
I’ve never shot outside with my lighting system before, but desperate times call for desperate measures. This brilliant CMU beauty scored herself a summer internship in the Hampton’s this summer, and I just had to shoot with her before she left.
Finding myself in Mount Pleasant last night I shot Mackenzie a text asking her when her last night in town would be, when she said ‘tonight’ my stomach dropped. I was booked until 10pm, and had nowhere indoors to shoot at after that time. Having shot at the French Auditorium on campus before, I said lets meet there and hopefully the building will still be open. It was not. However, we did find some outdoor outlets outside, and set up camp outside, resulting in some amazing nighttime shots!
Thanks so much for making time for me before you left Mackenzie, especially big thank you for working with me so late at night (our shoot ended at 12:03am) and on such late notice! Hopefully, I’ll be visiting you in the Hamptons this summer for some more amazing shots! 😉
