interesting story behind this photograph. 

well ok not that interesting, but fun non the less. 

i have a 5 light setup that i use for taking headshots. 3 on the person, and 2 lighting the backround. i began to shoot faster than my lights can recycle , and the end result was this image. i shot to fast as a follow up photo that only 1 of the 5 flashes were recharged enough to fire. and this beautiful and soft light was what was made. i had no idea until i loaded the cared up on my Mac. It reminded me to remember, to try new things. there is a ton of things you can do with 1 light, you dont always need a massive set up. sometimes the simpler the better.
