Not much to say about the shoot except Loyce is very good at posing people(even difficult subjects who have an incorrect preconceived idea of what a good portrait of them is...). Because of the subject, I chose butterfly lighting with a hard hair light from above camera left and a white bounce board from camera right. This lighting tends to be more forgiving to the subject and skills of the photographer (did I mention I don't do portraits?). The lighting became more of a loop style of lighting because of the hair light. The advantage is the best of both worlds, some shaping of the face and de-emphasizing of the lines. We worked through several different poses. The client chose the 3 she liked best from the shoot. After choosing the one with the best all around feel my work in Photoshop began. Here is the final presented to the client.
