Here’s a quick sample from Saturday’s photo-shoot for a side project I have been working on. The assignment is to create the images for a children’s book that is coming out in 2010. The final images in the book will be processed to appear as illustrations, but I thought I’d share an unedited version here.

The lighting for this shot was a combination of ambient and artificial. To accent the sunlight coming through the window, a small square softbox was placed left of the camera to light the model’s face and a silver reflector was positioned behind her.
