Red on Red, Omaha NE
In Nebraska there is no such thing as too much red! And Jess is a very no-nonsense Nebraska girl. She’s really cool and she was super nice to me, but she can kill a man with just one look. I would be very careful to stay on her good side if you ever cross paths with her.
I hand painted this background and when I saw Jess’s awesome red hair, I knew it would be perfect. It’s a piece of white seamless paper that was starting to get too dirty to use anymore, so I painted it with a roller. The paper started to warp pretty quickly so you have to paint fast or it can tear easily. But after drying overnight it turns out pretty cool. It’s a good way to re-use white paper that would otherwise go for recycling.
This portrait is lit with two lights. The main light is a large softbox above and camera right of Jess, which you can see clearly in the catchlights in her eyes. The second is a beauty dish directly above and slightly behind jess to light her hair and to throw a little bit of a vignette on the background.
