Looking quite cool in her warm hat!

This is a studio shot of my friend Lisa Bolduc, a young and talented photographer that I met last September at my workplace. We are both attending the same photography school as well, and last week, Lisa has kindly accepted to model for me during a class project on studio portrait.

Lisa has recently opened a RedBubble account, but she has started a new job lately, and has moved to another address, so she has yet to complete her profile and upload some photos.

Focal length 55mm
Aperture f/14
Shutter 1/125 sec.

Shot in a studio using one flash head with a large softbox, plus a hair light and a reflector, on a black seamless background.
Nikon D60

    Marvelous job with the framing of the face and that one eye boldly looking out! A sense of fun and mystery is conveyed! Great work Johanne!

  • Thank you Joanne! This was shot during the last few minutes of our allotted studio time, and it was really going well. She was having fun with the hat, and yes, she was getting bolder by the minute as well. Pity that it had to stop! I hope that she will accept to work with me again…

    So that’s where you’ve been!!
    Lovely shot Johanne – love the blue toning and that one beautiful eye!

  • Yep! Mostly on the job, but also working on a few school projects. Glad that you like the blue. It was meant to emphasize the “coolness”. Thank you for your comment, my friend! :-)

    Beautiful shot Johanne! You and Lisa had some great sucess with your shoot :)

  • Thank you Shelly! Funny, but Lisa doesn’t like this one as much. She thinks that her eye is too large in there, and I think that it brings something special to the shot. :-)
