"For this image, we really wanted to explore the juxtaposition between the dark clouds and the model clothed in white. We went to a local sunflower field, where I was determined and successful at not shooting one image of a sunflower the whole time we were there. We explored the surrounding forest and fields and came up with some interesting portraits.
Lighting was simple. 1 Alien Bee 1600 in a large octabox camera right and raised high. We wanted a definite shadow beneath the chin and a slight light fall off around her face. Camera was a Canon 5D2 with a 70-200L f/2.8. In the middle of this shoot I was attacked by a colony of fire ants which made the shoot all the more exciting."- Ryan Jones
