Haiku / by Mario Mirabile

Bright lights, shutters click, 
Rita Hayworth memories.
Must be Hollywood.

Haiku, high key, suit yourself. We have a high-key club comp later this year and I thought I'd try my hand at high-key portraiture. At least it gave me an excuse to trot out the light stands and flashes. The fair and lovely Allana obliged as model, and I'm quite pleased with the results.

The lighting set-up was simple, with two flashes bounced off umbrellas at 45 degrees from the front, and a smaller flash illuminating a convenient white wall and adding a touch of backlight.
