Bikini – Calgary Physique Photographer

Remember Dr. Amanda?  Here’s another frame from a series of images of her when she was 12 days out from a bikini category competition sanctioned by the Canadian Bodybuilding Federation.  She looks great!

I usually don’t get into the technical aspects, but today I will.  I shot the images high-key on white seamless.  3 light set-up (2 to blow out the background and the key light in a 53″ Octa). Some tileboard from the hardware store provided the ground reflection on her feet.  A couple foamcore cutters (you can get 4’x8′ sheets from an art store) to help prevent spill from the background lights.  I like the ground reflections because it gives some dimensionality to the image – otherwise your subject might appear like she is floating in space.

We also shot some images for an exercise & wellness book she is authoring, but those images may be the topic for a future blog post.
