Regular readers of this blog may recall a posting titled “The Model and the GI” http://behmphoto.com/the-model-and-the-g-i/ as well as their wedding photos.
Now model Kelin and her husband Jon have an addition to their family, a little lady who may very well carry on Momma’s modeling career, perhaps starting as soon as a five or six months of age.
Anyway, a family reunion took me back to the old stomping grounds last week. By pure coincidence, I learned that Kelin and her daughter Keira were visiting from their home while Jon is defending our nation. I like Kel, and offered to photograph the extremely cute Keira. When we finished, I did another few frames of momma and daughter together to send to Jon – in a place far, far away.
Below is a diagram of the lighting used for both the baby alone and for the two together. My usual operating procedure has been to use studio strobes for these kinds of photography, but since I was traveling for pleasure, hauling a couple of heavy cases full of gear wasn’t on my list of things to do. I didn’t even use light stands. In keeping with my growing regard for the high potential for what we once considered “on camera” flashes, or speed lights, that’s all I brought. Their use is diagrammed here, and shown with a couple of sample photos.
Jewelry, food photography and business executive head shots or portraits are my specialties.
