Amber Shoot

CLICK IMAGE TO OPEN POST CLICK IMAGE TO CLOSE POST
 



Model: Amber

Amber has a small space in which to work in here. She is being lit by a beauty dish and a reflector just out of frame. So it’s all about facial expressions here. We’re also at an open house for the Carriage House Studio so there are quite a few people milling about. She’s ignoring all that… Thanks Amber!
