On January 16, 2011, Alison, Audrey, Lauren, and Vaniah decided to go out into the Mission Gardens at Santa Clara University for a photo shoot. We brought a couple lights, a reflector, a portable stereo, and an ipod loaded with all of their favorite songs and it was a big success. Santa Clara turns into a magical place for photography during the “Golden Hour.”
End Notes: These photos are lit using natural light for the most part. Many of them were shot using a gold/silver/white reflector and the strobe-lit shots were taken using a Sigma 530 Super speedlight shot into a silver reflecting Laurella triggered with Cybersyncs. I used the Pentax 50mm f/1.4 and Pentax K20d for all of these photos.
