Every photographer has their go-to lighting and I'm no different. When Stephanie came I thought I would use one softbox and perhaps a rim light on a grid and can reflector but that's not how it ended up. Beauty dishes are great light for quick fall off from the subject but it can be harsh. Stephanie was able to handle it because her features seemed to like the harsher light.
Since she already knew how to pose that part wasn't a problem for getting good photos. I tried to give some very different looks from just one studio space. I had previously built walls in my studio with white-washed paneling that I brought it. There was an area shag rug nearby that I brought it plus this old vintage TV I bought 2 years ago waiting for a chance to use it and so I did.
