Advanced Techniques Class: Classmate Portrait

The second assignment in my Advanced Techniques was the classmate portrait.  My partner was fellow grad student Michelle Peltier.

I think the studio is big and scary because until last week, my studio experience was a bit lacking.  It was fun to experiment with different lighting setups (see diagrams below).  It is very hard to get past those “senior portrait” poses and do something a little more interesting.

Here are three of my favorite photos from the shoot:
