A photoshoot with Aurora.

Yesterday I had a photoshoot with my daughter and some of her friends. Aurora said she didn't want to take any photos, but when the camera came out it was a completely different story. Aurora acted like a professional in front of the camera. I didn't even have to tell her how to pose. She is a natural in front of the camera, and that makes it so easy to take photos of her. I shot this with the Canon 5D Mark IV and the Canon 24-70 Lens at f.8. I used one Yongnuo YN560 IV Speedlite Flash with the Westcott Rapid Box 26" Octa. The backdrop was savage fashion grey seamless paper. I used Adobe Lightroom for some simple corrections like white balance and exposure adjustments and then took the image over to Adobe Photoshop for the detailed editing. I enhanced the eyes and changed the color to match her hair, used some dodging and burning techniques to enhance the highlights and shadows in her skin and hair. Added some skin softening and sharpening and added a curves adjustment to add some contrast. I posted the Before and After image below. Enjoy and if you have any questions about the image or the edit, send me a message and I'll be happy to help you create amazing images for yourself!

My goal is to create a portrait.  It's what I love to do.  And I can't wait to do it with you.
