Today has been a great day! My big short-term goal at the business I’m working for was finally reached after nine weeks. We have reached a point in our occupancy in which we need to condense the owners units to make room for new customers. The owner has done a wonderful job with the business in just a year and a half of ownership. When he bought the place the occupancy rate was around 10% and now it is near 70%. I hope to have it at 90% before the end of summer. I will soon be launching an all out blitz of a marketing campaign.
For tonight’s photo I wanted to play around with lighting concepts a little. Instead of lighting Shannon directly I wanted to focus most of the light on the wall behind her and let just a portion of the light spill over on to her. By only allowing a part of the light to hit Shannon’s figure directly it created really soft transitions form light to shadow making for a more dramatic feeling image. One small detail about this photo that I really love is the reflection of her hand and arm on the tile. To me it almost seems like someone is reaching out from a fantasy world to press a palm against hers.
We are nearing the end to the kickstarter campaign. I want to thank everyone for their kind support. Please help us spread the word, we have a long way to go and need all the help we can get.
