photoblog image JFactor finalist: Ebele

JFactor finalist: Ebele

WOW its been ages yet again, however I am trying to turn over a new leaf and blog................... we'll see. Anyway I hope to use my blog to vent ......... sorry I mean talk and show images of what I've been up to.

I took this one about 2 months ago for JFactor I was commissioned to do a photoshoot of all the 8 finalists. To get a feel of their personality I decided to ask them to sing for me before I shot away. Watching her sing I thought I'd add a microphone and use a fan to blow her hair and there you have it, simple and easy. I used a canon 350D (yes one of those) and two studio lights one for the subject and one on the background which was some funny piece of cloth that I came across and yes I know I should have ironed it, I had no time ..............

Give me your thoughts on this image if any
