Sintel, Head Shot

With a gift card I got for Christmas, I bought a book on Portrait photography I found in a used book store. I figured going through the book would help me with creating interesting photos of characters that I create. This head shot of Sintel, from the open movie Sintel, was one of the first attempts of lighting a character based on what I learned from the book. I didn’t create the Sintel model, but I did pose her, set up the lighting, background, and camera for the shot.
