Shannon had her first rodeo meeting tonight. They get a very early start on preparing for the big show each year and tonight was night one of many more meetings to come over the next few months. She wasn’t going to be getting home until late and therefore I chose a concept that would be classic as well as quick. I had Shannon pose in a very statuesque style on her knees with her hands placed behind her back. I use a two light setup for the photo with one of the lights behind her as a separation light and one high above her as our key. This type of light creates a very dramatic look due to the deep shadows over the figure.
