JENNIFER RAPOZA | FORUM FEATURE FRIDAY

design3-e1401425522541-1024x272 We just couldn’t wait to share this unique senior session from Forum Member,  Jennifer Rapoza of Jennifer Rapoza Photography in Sonora, California!

Inspiration: Mari wanted to do a more dramatic look with the red and black for her shoot. Her Grandmother made her tulle skirt for her.

Equipment:  Cannon 5D Mark2, 50mm, AB800 with 48 in octobox and reflector for indoor shots. 
70-200 and reflector for outdoor shots.

Concept or Style Collaboration:  Yes, we got inspiration from Pinterest. We searched photos of Black Swan, but Marielle didn’t want her images to be that dramatic. Our area is in a severe drought right now so everything is dry, tan and brown. We knew to get a dramatic, colorful look we needed colors in her wardrobe that would pop against the dry grasses.

Editing:  A bit of contrast added to make the red and black pop against the dry grasses.

Favorite thing about  this session:  I’m drawn to dramatic color and love the way Marielle’s wardrobe pops in these images. Putting a ballerina wearing a tutu in a field of dead grasses is unexpected and comes out beautifully.
