After downsizing and losing my studio when we moved to Woodstock, GA in November of 2017, I realized that I really needed to brush up on my outside “natural” light skills. Enter the pretty face of Ashleigh Burnette.
Ashleigh is a working actress and model whose mother/manager, Lana, reached out to me to do a natural light shoot with her daughter. Ashleigh is a teen-ager, and we really wanted to capture a look that was more along the lines of a senior portrait instead of a glamour girl. Friends, I have to tell you, that was difficult. Everything about Ashleigh is glamorous – from her hair to her toes she is the epitome of beauty and glamour.
We prowled around downtown Woodstock and took advantage of the shops and boutiques along Main Street as our backgrounds and settings. Every photo was done with just sunlight, open shade, and filled in as needed with a white reflector.
I used my Nikon D300 and Nikon D7100 along with a 50mm 1.8, 85 1.8, and a 28-75 2.8
