20 Something

20 Something

My girlfriend is headed out of town for the next three weeks, so I thought I would take a brief break to post one of my favorite portraits of her.

Last Christmas, work had a 1920s themed holiday party at City Hall in SF. I think it's every young girls dream to be a flapper, so we spent several weeks assembling something right out of a speakeasy's dance floor.

I shot this with one light in my softbox, positioned to about 45 degrees to camera right. B has limited patience for this kind of tomfoolery, but I managed to get this shot before I got one of those patented frames with her eyes rolling at me. ;)

What can I say? She's gorgeous.
