Light Testing - Having Fun

Hello All,

I wanted to share a bit of lighting examples I did while photographing for Worth magazine.  These were different, one light, setups that Daniel and I did while setting up for our subject. Daniel Rosenthal, modeling below, friend and fellow photographer, was kind enough to let me test the light on him.

My Camera Bag
