This environmental fashion headshot of Kim, one of our favorite models, was photographed by Barnet Photography for her portfolio during an environmental fashion photography workshop near the train station in San Juan Capistrano. This location is across the street from the San Juan Capistrano Mission.
Barnet Photography, based in Costa Mesa, Orange County, teaches several different classes and workshops in collaboration with Samy's Camera in Orange County, Los Angeles and Pasadena.
This particular image was made in back / side natural afternoon light and lit with a Profoto B1 and a large shoot-through deep umbrella on one side and a gold / silver reflector on the other. The flash was used at minimum power and an ND gel so that a wide aperture could be used for shallow depth of field.
Location: San Juan Capistrano, California.
