Janine Smith (one of my students from my Santa Fe Workshop last week, and a great photographer in her own right), sent me the top shot shown here, which she took during our live class shoot in the Saloon at the Eaves Movie Ranch.

I thought it was pretty cool as you could see the set-up, and the final shot I took below it. Although we were primarily shooting with natural window light, eventually I did bring in a reflector to open up the shadows on the dark side of the cowboy’s face, but this photo was taken before we moved the reflector into place. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing both shots (thanks to Janine for sharing that “Live on Location” photo).
