Close to home....
Sometimes, I get really lucky and get an assignment close to home. This portrait was shot about two blocks from my apartment. It's a portrait of Talia, singer in a band called Katie the Pest, who was performing at She Sells CDs by the Sea Shore, a small music store down the street. The location was right in front of the store.
Not the most picturesque site (sitting on a bus bench on Broadway and Falcon), but the light was golden and at a pretty good angle. I was getting flare in my lens but decided to play with it. It creates a nice ethereal mood to the portrait. Luckily, I had some help. A friend of Talia's showed up and was kind enough to hold my reflector to bounce some fill in.
