Hey cool people.

So a while back I worked with Donna again. We planned two different looks, in two locations. 

First we hit the botanical gardens by Emmerentia Dam, and as per usual, we almost got kicked out again.... We shall not discuss why, but lets just say they wanted us to grease the gears a lil.

Anyway we made a plan and we did the shoot as planned. 

First set up we used 3 speedlights inside one pop up umbrella softbox, which acted as a single light. The rest was natural light. 

Second location was merely a fire escape on the side of a building we walked up, funny enough we had less issue shooting here than in the public area of the gardens.

This was done using the same lighting.
