"Megan, Class Of 2008"

Here is an image I  made a few years ago.  It was part of Megan's high school senior portrait session.  I used a black cloth behind her for my background.  She was wearing a black turtleneck sweater too.  With all the very dark tonalities, including her hair, the viewers' attention goes directly to her lovely face. The expression in the eyes and on her lips shows a confident young adult ready for the future. Light is coming from my White Lightning studio flash in a single 45" Westcott Halo from camera left. Camera specs: Canon 40D fitted with 70-200mm IS lens, at 99mm, F 10.0 @ 1/160 second, ISO 200.  Enjoy!  -David


  1. Hi Dave,

    This yet another amazing image. I was curious to know if you had to use lightroom or other tools to completely hide the sweater or if it was just the way you positioned the lights to get just the right fall off?
