Personal Project: Lighting and post processing 101

Sometimes you just need a few personal projects to push your own creative boundaries. 

A. I've been thinking about lighting lately and have been wanting to create something that is just for me, in a style that I've been wanting to try, no pressure from my subject, and no pressure from me...

B. I've also been attempting to post process pictures to produce a certain "look". I don't feel like I have been able to produce what has been in my head until I discovered this lighting setup.  I'm super excited about it!

I have several built in subjects and 1 or 2 are usually willing to sit for a few moments while I test things out. I liked what I saw, however I had no idea if this lighting would work for other subjects. I put out a call on Facebook asking for a couple of people to come in to test this new lighting setup with me.

Thankfully 3 beautiful ladies, Jolynn, Beth and Laura came to my rescue!

1. Jolynn: She was my first subject to test.... I wasn't really sure where I wanted to take these pictures just yet, so she was strictly my "lighting guinea pig." 
2. Laura came to visit me next. Shes having a baby!!! So of course I have to take pictures of the baby bump. (the picture of the bump is at the bottom of this post) I had a little better vision for her and I'm in love with the new lighting at this point.
3. Beth: I told Beth to come in with no make up and don't dress up. :)  Beth has a great personality and was more then willing to humor me. :) Thank you for all your amazing faces!
