This portrait is my favorite of the night. I like Deborah’s pose and expression with the well-set-up lighting.
I took this picture early, the second portrait of the night. The lighting was a funky two-toned affair with blue and red — it’s easy to change color on modern LED lights to produce wacky effects. While it makes for creative opportunities, I prefer traditional colors. However, with others using the same setup, I just went with what was there.
Ultimately, I knew it didn’t matter since I tend to create monochrome portraits. The conversion to black and white turned out even better than expected — Deborah was lit beautifully. The textured background wall with spillover light offered separation of the subject.
