So where do you take somebody in LA that’s getting ready for her Debut… er… um… Swebut that’s lush and green (and natury?) that doesn’t look at all like LA? Fern Dell, that’s where!!! At least that’s where we took Rhianna for her pre Debut… uh… Swebut photo session. And it was awesome! Right after the rain! Glad the dress didn’t get wrecked. Whew!!!

All the photo info that I know:
Camera and Lens: Canon 5D MkIII with a 70-200mm f2.8L IS set at f/2.8, 1/80, ISO 200, 78mm.
Lighting: 1 580EXII on a monopod with medium softbox @ 1/32 power to the right just out of frame held by son and triggered by Pocket Wizard PWIIs.

It is not often that we get the privilege of capturing such a stunning group of athletes in action, and it's even less often that they go "vogue" for us on our little studio set up. With hours of training on them, endless homework assignments, and chores, not to mention friends and family gatherings, I often wonder....do they even sleep? Super humans perhaps and super gracious. Thank you again for being great role models; all of you!

And the camera stuff:
Camera and Lens: Canon 5D MkIII with a 70-200mm f2.8L IS set at f/8, 1/125, ISO 400, 80mm.
Lighting: 2 580EXII with 36” umbrellas, one on each side behind talent @ ½ power 2 Bowens GM500s with 46” umbrellas to the left and right @ f/8. Metered by Sekonic L358 and all triggered by Pocket Wizard PWIIs.
