One of the most difficult things to do in photography is to create great images without having control over the light on your subject. The only way to do this is to move the subject around the light until it falls on them in the best way. This shoot was chosen for the sheer challenge of it.
We went to Long Beach again after dark to shoot with available light. Available light refers to any source of light that is not explicitly supplied by the photographer for the purpose of taking photos. In this case, we found a mixture of sodium vapor, LED, and incandescent lights. The different lights have varying colors and render the spectrum of colors in incomplete ways. Locations had to be chosen not for their interest but for the quality of the light in the area. The blue tile location had fewer mixed lights and more overhead light direction. This gives a more natural looking daytime feel. The overhead lights were LED and a bit blue in color. In front of Krista are sodium lights that are warm yellow-orange. This warm and cool combination really added interest from the color. Color combined with the excellent posing Krista provided created some stunning images.
