Almost one year ago I got a call from the lovely Orissa asking if I was free to do an unplanned, spur of the moment studio shoot. I said yes but didn't have a specific concept in mind at such short notice. Orissa said "great, leave it with me, I just need to do a little festive shopping on my way to you." The result of her festive shopping and our efforts in the the studio can be seen below. Always great fun to shoot the incredibly talented @orissakelly.
Using 2 SB900 speedlites one each side of Orissa to give her an edgy pop out of the dark background. All setting to manual with speedlites fired by the D800 pop up flash.
