These images were taken on a recent trip to Arizona, where Miss Arizona Galaxy Tana Castro graciously worked all day while myself and 3 other photographers photographed her. Besides being rediculously gorgeous, she’s also incredibly patient! I met Tana last summer when we competed together for the title of Miss Galaxy, and we hit it off immediately. She’s one more friend that I wish I could see more often. Oh, and did I mention she’s gorgeous?
It was a great experience to learn more about lighting on location from my boss Jackie (www.studiojphotography.net), Jeff Dashowski of New Hampshire (www.dachowskiphotography.com) and Andrea Chapelo of Ohio (www.chapelo.blogspot.com), all three of whom are celebrated photographers in their field. We took a day off from the Imaging USA conference in Phoenix to meet Tana, and it was well worth the trip.
