"You have to do an emergency photoshoot!" Those are the words I woke up to as my partner jumped on me in bed the other day. Our friend Lupe (above) is applying for survivor and the amazing race. Well, the agency that is responsible for hiring for these shows call her up that morning and said they needed some head and body shots of her so they can put together a profile. Oh yeah, and they needed the photos by 7:00pm.
I had recently gotten some new stands and umbrellas for my speedlights so I was excited to use them. This would give me the perfect opportunity. We went over to Lupe's house in the afternoon to do the shoot. When I got there I realized that the new equipment was in the Truck that Laura took to work. I quickly called her and luckily she was getting out of work and would bring them right over.
I took a few portraits inside but that wasn't really working so we headed out into the yard. Lupe has a beautiful house with a barn, animals and plenty of land. After working around the yard a little, I decided to shoot some photos by the barn.
Laura stands in as my model so that I can test the lights.

We had a lot fun doing the shoot and a nice dinner afterward. Let's hope that she gets on one of the shows. She says that if she wins I get a new camera... Go Lupe!
