Sophie by Bruce M Walker
Sophie, a photo by Bruce M Walker on Flickr.

A straight-forward "studio" portrait of my niece, Sophie. Shot on location in my sister's living room (she's a champ to put up with me rearranging the whole thing).

I was also testing my latest money-saving invention: $10 IKEA background support system. Ingredients: One Hugad black curtain rod, 210-385 cm; 2x Betydlig curtain rod brackets, top-slot filed out to fit 1/4" stud on top of light stand; use with two cheap 8' light stands.

Technically, this is Paramount short lighting with reflector fill and hair light. Pentax AF540FGZ in Westcott Medium Apollo above-left, key; Pentax AF540FGZ in 30" umbrella softbox, boomed, behind-right, hair; 42" silver reflector (Westcott 5-in-1), right.
