Senior 4

f/5.6, 1/160, ISO-400, 55mm, Flash

OK, this one really IS one of my favorite photos from the session. It was also one of the first ones we took. We were out on the frozen lake, and while I was setting up a half hour before out shoot was scheduled to begin I saw the full moon sinking far too quickly toward the horizon. As quickly as I could I set something up and shot just the moon, and I confess that I Photoshopped it in to this picture. By the time our arranged session time began and the subject was actually on the lake, the moon was out of site.

This was also taken with a flash bouncing off a gold reflector, but I did adjust the tone back down into the blue range a bit. I also took advantage of the dark background to create a much darker vignette than I normally could get away with, to make sure that her face was lit more intensely. I was very pleased with the overall mood that I ended up with.
