Photo Shoot: Sara Jean Kelley

Here's some BTS on a recent shoot I did for New York Minute Magazine with Sara Jean Kelley. Chief Major Junior Assistant Suzi and I managed to bring this together in a cold parking lot. Fortunately, Sara had a both bad-ass and warm $10 fur coat. I love shoots like this because she had fun with it and subsequently rocked it.

For anyone curious, our modeling lamps were the high beams from my car. It's a single light, on a boom, overhead. There is no fill. All of the sense of feel comes from the position of the modifier, in this case a medium softbox.

Her new release, The Waiting Place, is engaging, interesting and rough around the edges, so the intent was to have these photos feel the same. See the photos as well as the interview here.
