Anatomy of a Fitness Shoot

Posted on

Oh my gosh, do I love shooting fitness! Working on a fitness shoot is some of the most fun I get to have with lighting—sculpting bodies and creating/shaping shadow.

Last week I had Sam in the studio for a headshot session. It’s hard to take a bad photo of Sam, she’s gorgeous with a distinct look. Check out those fantastic eyebrows! We went for some simple high-key shots, then changed up the expressions and posing and had a bit of fun. I take all […]
