Yoga has always been one of my favorite activities to photograph. I was first introduced to it through Lululemon and my love for it developed with my work with the company as well. It is such an amazing balance between sports and portrait photography that it speaks to my soul. It also is such a personal sport that it means something different to everybody that practices it, so tapping into that emotion and physicality is paramount in capturing it properly in my opinion. It helps tell the story and convey the message of what Yoga is to the viewer. This shoot was no exception and Claire is one of the most amazing Yogis I have ever had the pleasure to work with. In this Behind the Scenes video, you see two of the lighting scenarios we had to work with that morning and how we were at it before sunrise to make sure everything was in place for those first few moments of sunlight. Using one light and one modifier for the majority of this shoot, you can see how I balance daylight and strobe to create cinematic, beautiful, captivating images for an iconic brand.
