Portraits: Alex the Harpist, Part 3

Alex and her Harp

You saw part 1 and part 2 of my photo shoot with Alex. Here are the photos from the third segment of our shoot. For this part, we went to a park in Davis near Alex’s house and basically lugged the harp and a plethora of lighting and camera equipment into the forest. I think the joggers and walkers enjoyed hearing her play as I set up my lights.

End Notes: Most of these shots were taken with the 50mm f/1.4. I lit the forest shots with the Sigma 530 speedlight shot into a silver reflective umbrella and a Vivitar 285 suspended in a tree behind the model. The lights were triggered with cybersyncs. For the shot of Alex sitting on the bench with the harp, there is a speedlight on the bench to her left pointing at her.
