Studio Photography: Birthday Portraits With Adreanna

This photo shoot with Adreanna was a fun one. She wanted to do a photoset celebrating her upcoming birthday so we grabbed a dozen balloons and a beautiful roll of seamless to do some bright, fun portraits. I'm still in the infancy of getting comfortable shooting in a studio setting with lights so I kept things simple with just a two-light setup for these shots. The first one was  a clamshell lighting with an octabox and strip box underneath to fill shadows. We used this for the first four shots here. The rest of the shots I used the octabox as a key light just off camera and the stripbox as fill. That setup offered nice even lighting and some great accents or catch light in the balloons.
