Seattle Central Creative Academy: dSLR Portrait Assignment (Natural Light)

The goal was to create a portrait using existing light.  Reflectors yes.  Strobes or flash no.  To make it interesting I handed a polar bear costume to model and fellow student Jessica Yager.  Then for further eccentricities, I handed her metal shears.  Thus, upon a roof in Pioneer Square under cloudy skies with the use of one reflector, the portrait transformed into a crackhead on the loose in the city.

Location: Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA

Camera/Lens Specifics: Canon 5D Mark II with Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM
