This is our friend Katie, who agreed to be a model for me, since I needed some more shots for my Environmental Portraiture class on Monday. It worked out great - she was a wonderful model and the light was quite lovely. This shot is on the bridge over PCH that we walked over to get down to the beach. I got some good beach photos, too, but I liked this one because of the shapes and patterns and crazy backlight.
There is a large reflector (piece of white foam core) just to my left that my assistant/wife held to illuminate her face.
[last year] beautiful engineering...
