My Nude Year: Day 175 of 365

Tonight we decided to add a lot of color in the photo. We didn’t worry about color matching in this image so much as just having a lot of colors that really contrast and pop. Shannon grabbed some bright blue shoes and the vase of flowers I bought her a few days again and we set up in the foyer. For the key light I wanted a nice even tone so I used our speedlight with a parabolic umbrella as the modifier. I didn’t use a background light tonight so that you would be able to see the tonal difference between Shannon’s skin color and the wall. Maybe some day in the future I will revisit this set up and use a background light to see what result we get. You never know I may like it better than this one although I really feel this is a strong photo.

Until tomorrow,

JW Purdy
