I made this image Monday evening while walking the grounds of the Tuscany Resort in Florida. LaDawn and I found this great spot with arches, wonderful colors, and interesting lighting. I asked her to climb the steps and peek out from the large opening in the wall. The problem was getting a decent direction of light on her. This was easily accomplished with my handy dandy little mini Z-Ray I had in my pocket. I used rubber bands to attach it to a monopod I happen to have with me – we were doing some other shoots around the property on this evening. With my left hand, I lifted the light into place high and to my left. After getting it in the right position for a nice loop lighting pattern on LaDawn’s face, I fired the shutter with my right hand. I think it turned out pretty cool considering I was working without any assistant to hold the light. Camera specs; Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens, F 4.0 @ 1/30 second, ISO 2500.
