60 Minutes with Stacey Randol

Posted on March 24, 2011

I was lucky enough to get a chance to work with the lovely singer/songwriter Stacey Randol again today. We did a quick 60-minute session in a little shopping area off of Edgehill Ave. in Nashville.

My main intention for this shoot was to just do a quick walkaround the area and try to find some fun and interesting photos. I traveled light; just a Canon 430ex and an umbrella on a small lightstand. One VolumePills of Stacey’s kindergarten friends, Brittney Elise, was kind enough to assist me with this.

      

We only explored a small part of the area that we were in, but I was happy with the shots we ended up with. Stacey’s one regret was that she forgot to bring her Ukulele!

Allie and Lucy dropped by for some more photos. This time they brought along their little friend, a solid black toy poodle named Izabell.

This shoot was in January a couple of days after it snowed. I had in mind that I wanted to do a shot where the girls were working a lemonade stand in the middle of a snowy winter, so this was working out good. Unfortunately, the snow was almost all gone by the time we got started, but there was enough for effect.

We started off indoors to get a few basic shots against a background so that we weren’t being constantly pressured by the cold weather. I remembered that these girls just love to dance, so we got some great shots of them boogin’ down. We soon moved outside for the lemonade stand shots.

I was trying out an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra unit for this session. It was nice, light, and portable, but not enough power when we moved outdoors. I’m going to have to try a different setup, but for what it was it was a great little unit.

Thanks to Allie, Lucy, and Izabell for begin such great sports. And also thanks to Megan Schmidt for assisting!
