Teresa, originally uploaded by Bruce M Walker.

My brother-in-law's sister recently agreed to model for me, and we spent a very pleasant afternoon this past Saturday in her lovely home. I enlisted my own sister as assistant. Teresa has been working out body building so after doing some traditional portraiture, I had her pose with weights.

These are shot using mostly window light (big bay windows), aided by a 40" reflector (Photobasics 5-in-1 [a great deal, btw]). In this portrait I also added a hairlight: a gridded AF-540FGZ on a stand behind to her right.

Pentax K20D, DA* 55mm, f/1.7, 1/500th, ISO 400.
