Through my involvement with Cavod Community Theater, in New Holland, I had the privilege of meeting Stephanie. She is an accomplished violinist and did an excellent job playing for our performances of “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” (However, she was a little shy when I took photos of the orchestra during practice.)
Last fall she needed publicity shots for a concert, so we did a photo shoot with her antique violin. I choose to go with natural lighting and have her sit on a stool near glass sliding door in the late afternoon / early evening. It was a casual setting that also helped put her at ease in front of camera.
The lighting was just enough to highlight Stephanie and the violin but not the backdrop behind her.
