A beautiful Thai woman sits on the porch of a traditional Thai teak wood house.
Like yesterday's photo, this is another fun shoot for my own personal fulfillment and practice. Often times, I find I need to temporarily distance myself from my non-model travel-oriented shooting in order to reset myself and get a new perspective. When these times arise, I immediately think in-situ type shoots like the one above. However, finding the location is generally the most difficult portion of the endeavor, especially a location that allows the setup of light stands and other clutter (see photo below).

Strobist: The setup shot unfortunately doesn't show the gelled bare bulb light accenting her hair and cheek, hidden perfectly behind the wooden column. In retrospect, I think I should have brought that hair light a bit higher to separate her crown from the dark background behind her.
