Sarah teaches bass

This was a promotional shoot for Sarah Higgins, she is a local Bass tutor and is in a number of bands.
She required some simple headshots and shots of her bass guitars, but I thought I'd give her something creative that incorporated all of these elements.

Lighting: Bowens strobe key light - camera left
Bowens strobe rim light - camera right
Bowens strobe bass guitar light - camera right

Camera: Canon 6D
Lens: Tamron 28-75mm

I had to have the bass guitar positioned right next to me with the light on its highest intensity to enable the reflection on the guitar.

Editing: I sharpened the reflection and used the dodge tool to to bring out the guitar even more.
I then cleaned up the other lens and then cleaned the skin and applied a B&W filter with a warming filter to add an interesting tone.
