Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

From the Zoe pregnancy series.

PLEASE click on image to see larger.

Zoe at 33 weeks.

I am pleased with this for a few reasons.

One, that I had an idea in my mind beforehand.
Two, that I had to think through the lighting and experiment to get the outcome with silhouette I wanted.
Three, that it worked lol
Four, I ended up with several great pics to choose from.
Five, after processing her form to where I was happy with it, I was left with my stark white background. After countless different attempts I think I found the perfect backdrop, which involved isolating her from the background, using a filter on the background, and the use of a couple of strategically placed lens flares.
Hope you like it :)
