This shot of Jodi Miller, figure competitor from Lewisville, Texas, from this past Sunday was a last second thought of Jon Howard’s. We had run out of time to work with Jodi. Jon had brought the motorcycle hundreds of miles hoping to use it as a prop. He asked Jodi if we could take a few shots with it. Jodi was gracious and climbed into the back of Jon’s pickup truck and we fired off a few frames.

I was surprise and pleased with this shot. The sequence of light is the sun high overhead to Jodi’s left front. I am using a silver reflector from behind. The setup is sun (high overhead), Jodi, reflector, and yours truly all in a straight line. The angle of the reflector is pretty much 180 degrees opposed to the sun. Jodi is standing in the bed of the truck and I am on the asphalt just outside the truck. Camera all automatic, point and shoot.

Small amount of curves adjustment, blurred background for separation, and unsharp mask. The USM might be a bit over the top for screen display but works great in the print version. Also in print the brighter area on her derriere smoothes out.

All four frames I shot in this sequence came out with great contrast. Not having shot this lighting sequence before I was pleasantly surprised with the range of light the camera captured. Particularly given the intensity of the light. I look forward, as time and circumstance allow, to experiment some more using opposing overpowering light sources.

As always, your comments, thoughts, and critiques, (see if I can spell it right this time) in all flavors, encouraged and appreciated.

I see what you see and I also love the way light shapes the gas tank of the bike and the shape of her 'posterior'. It is and association of man made and human form and beauty.

Well done.
