Behind The Lens

There is an auto restoration shop where we are friends with the owner and he allows us to do photo shoots there. It's SSR Auto Restorations in Panama City, Florida.
This was in the afternoon since we're really not morning people. Since it was inside, the time of day didn't necessarily matter although we did take a few in the garage and a couple outside of the shop.
We have our own lighting we use for indoor shoots - the Cowboy Studio lighting although most of the photos are natural light with post-processing in Lightroom.
Camera: NIKON D5100 Aperture: f/5.3 ISO: 3200 Exposure: 1/80 We both take photos since we're a husband and wife team so we never know whose photo we'll use till we start editing.
We do a lot of pinup and retro photos and specialize in those so we met up with Alexis and her mom and did a combination of pinup and Christmas photos.
Most everything in this photo was done in Lightroom only although we do use Photoshop as well, on some of our photos.

I like rich colors so I wanted to make sure that the reds were rich and vibrant. I added a sun flare to the right of the photo so that her natural beauty would be the focus of the shot, along with the colors and theme.
