I’ve recently been doing some work for the rock climbing team my wife manages. She is creating marketing materials and is incorporating photos of team members.

Today’s image came from a recent studio session we did with team member Sarah. For this shot we looped the climbing rope over the rafters and had her tie in. I initially took some images from eye level before moving up onto a ladder to get the top down capture shown here. Here’s a shot of the setup I took when I stepped back to let Sarah’s father get her picture.

The isolation was a bit more difficult than usual, due to the fact that I could have easily used 2 more lights on the shot for the lower portion. To complete the isolation I had to spend a bit of time in Photoshop cleaning up the bottom of the frame.
