What gear lusting photographer doesn't love the opportunity to test out a new acquisition with some fantastic collaborators?  How many can say their shoot went off without a hitch? :)

I love my quirky little Sigma but this was the first time I'd tried pointing it at a human subject with the aim to create something great.  I'd say it succeeded but not without some teething issues and a good helping of user error.  Still I couldn't fault my subject or the work that went into making her look fantastic on the day.

These images were all shot with available light but perhaps next time ill put it to the test with flash.

From the great Shoot with Model Rebecca Cain and Makeup/Styling by Elise Kate Makeup.
