Shaylee - Miss Bikini Fitness 2015

I've been wanting to do a shoot in a gym for a long time, so when I saw that Shaylee had recently won the Miss Bikini Fitness 2015 title, I messaged her and asked if she was interested in doing a shoot.  The concept was inspired by photographer, Pavel Ythjalla, who's images of female fitness models leans more towards fantasy and glamour much more than actual fitness. 

Shaylee works out at Positive Results and thanks goes to them for allowing us to use their gym for the shoot.   Thanks also to Maria for doing the Make up.

The lighting for this shoot was a bit tricky as there needed to be lots of rim lighting.  So I asked Troy Jennings to assist, as he is an expert when it comes to this kind of lighting.  Between us, we had enough Einsteins (5) to get the results we were looking for.  There was a fill light from the front, two 3'x2' gridded soft boxes on the sides and two spot lights (7" reflectors) at the rear.  And then some photoshop to add the feeling of light spill.
