I have worked with many girls, and there are some that are ok to work with, you have to coach them through, but you get the results at the end. And then there are girls like Kyla, once you get them started, you just have to click away!

I told her I was interested in headshots, so I would like her to just make different faces at me. Boy, be careful what you wish for! For the next 15 mins or so, the camera was glued to my face and I clicked away.

Below is a few shots we came out with. XSi + 70-200/2.8 IS + reflectors in natural light.

Ha ha, this was just how I imagined it.

Ha ha, what a weird face~

I wanted her to play with her hair...

I have yet to fix my blog to take horizontal shots, but many people like this one.

Wow, it's been a long time... Did you guys miss me? Been busy doing paid gigs like weddings and newborn shoots, which means they have higher priority than these fun free shoots. Hey, at least now I have break even, and anything that I make shall be profit! I plan on getting into debt with a new camera, the Canon 5D Mark II...

Anyways, I did a couple headshots (my favorite!) of Alena, where Jen Thomas and Amy Smotherman from Last Tangle KC did the hair and makeup. Sure did made my editing much easier! Thanks!

Setup is pretty much natural light. Had a large diffuser by the large window to soften the light, and then a gold (I think) reflector on camera right for fill. The background is actually a silver reflector, just trying new things... :) Camera is XSi with 70-200mm f/2.8 IS @ f/2.8 most of the time.

My favorite of her set. She has more of a cute face than typical models.

Another headshot, but I wanted more light in her eyes, so she was looking at the light source.

Glam shot with smile

Basically detail of the hair to show off the stylist's work.

And Alena blows you a kiss goodbye, hoping you liked her photos! :)
