I think Farm Quince Photos in Miami are a great idea! Perhaps this is because I am from Vermont LOL. But, never the less I am down to shoot them anytime!
Here tho, this was not "really" a farm. It was a barn and a fence, and it "looked" like a farm but it was actually a park. The way I shot this would make you think otherwise tho.
Let start with what I think is really working here.. first, the subject is obviously beautiful. Her outfit is also very nice, and "pops" from the background. (red is generally a good choice). The shoes are super cute, and add to the whole "doll like" feel this shot has.
I have tried to create the illusion of motion, and have her looking off camera to further "sell" that.
The lighting here is pretty straight forward.. I have tow lights. A main, (Mola beauty dish) hand held by assistant on a boom stick camera right. The kicker, is a 400ws light on a stand camera left out of frame. Full CTO on this light, and this had a HP silver reflector on it. The shot started with the ambient in camera.. I got the barn and far trees to look just as I wanted within 2 tests shots.. and then, I simply dialed in the power levels of the lights to match that on my subject. In the end I get this. A VERY impressive shot.
