Shooting Brittany Oldehoff was a terrific experience in Miami Beach. Art Direction by Jarmo; MUA by Mary Alejo.
Shot in ambient reflected light using two large, 4′x8′, white reflectors camera right and camera left, with the model in the shade against a white wall. The camera was about 6″ off of the floor level. This will give your the model even longer looking legs.
