Zinnia the Fairy

Zinnia the Fairy flies around the world stopping at Renaissance Festivals all over. I was lucky enough to get her to stop for a few moments while she was in the Carolina's for a few weeks so I could practice.

One of my favorite techniques when the sun goes down, is to switch my White Balance to Tungsten and gel my off camera flash with an orange filter. The sky turns a gorgeous blue/violet and the warming filter adds a nice glow to her skin. I placed another flash right behind her to help illuminate her wings and give a little background separation.

Next time you get a chance to have a fairy in front of your camera, give one of the above techniques a try!
