Editorial Portraiture: Haylie the cheerleader

Model Portfolio: Haylie - Cheerleader | by David Giral

I met Haylie during Don Giannatti Lighting Essentials workshop in November 2009. She is a cheerleader for the Toronto Argonauts CFL football team and it was a great experience shooting with her.

First series of photos were taken inside the studio (William Ainsley Photography Studio in Bowmanville, Ontario in the GTA area)  and we used an orange background and single flash equiped with a Speedlight Pro Kit softbox diffuser.

It was a beautiful afternoon of November, the day had been overcast for most of the day, but as the sun was about to set, the sky cleared and the light was nothing short of amazing. Taking advantage of the studio surroundings was easy and matching the colour of Haylie’s hair with the background made for stunning images.

Finally, using the last bit of light available, we went on the nearby street and shot some photos using the vanishing point. We asked her to walk away and turn back as she would be leaving.
