I have had the privilege of photographing the talented and beautiful ballet dancer, Anna L. Russell. Here she is taking a break during our dance photo session.

Lighting was accomplished by having a strip box, slightly behind and on each side of the model for edge lighting. Each strip box was adjusted to equal light output. Directly in front of model was the fill light, a six foot umbrella with diffusion material on front. The umbrella's light output was adjusted to about 2 f-stops less light than the strip boxes.

Processing was done in Photoshop and Lightroom.
