On this date in 2004 I shot a photo session with a Model with the pseudonym Sommers. This was shot in our fledgling studio on 109th street in E-town with a canon 10D and the cheapo kit lens that came with my first rebel film camera. I remember this shoot well because it was the first real success that I had “in studio”  I say that in quotes like that because the “studio” was a short roll of white seamless backdrop paper and two Vivitar speed lights mounted pointing towards the ceiling one on an optical slave and the other corded to the camera. This set us was super soft light but it tended to be super foggy with the cheap kit lens. Most photos were really soft of out of focus altogether.

This was the photo shoot that drove me to seek out all I could learn about fashion photography and studio lighting.
