Recently I have been wanting to do an avant-garde hair shoot. I just needed to find the right stylist to work with. A few weeks ago I met Devan Aledia Ford who is a fantastic hair stylist. When I told her about my desire to do a stylized hair shoot, she took the idea and ran with it. She conceptualized a spring-themed, fairytale-inspired shoot. She even styled the wardrobe and did the makeup (never underestimate the power of a great stylist).
My lighting setup was pretty simple. I used four, bare bulb speedlites. As you may notice in the lighting diagram below, I am using the lighting setup that I developed using gaffers tape to shape my main light.
