From the glowing lights in the background, you might have guessed correctly that I shot this in the same place as the last two posts — at Stay Gold from this past February. Vivian makes her second appearance on the blog. I also featured her back in June in a Drink and Click Portrait from the Craftsman Bar.
Lighting wise, I made this portrait in the available ambient light. You might be able to tell that my ambient light portraits are generally softer and perhaps a bit dreamier. Part of this is because the light source is not as intense as dedicated lights. I also shoot at higher ISOs and slower shutter speeds.
Vivian is wearing a dress designed and created by Nhi, who I also featured in a portrait. She actually made a number of dresses and the models had fun dressing up in vintage designs. It made for an extra special Drink and Click.
