This image was taken yesterday at my workshop at the world famous Moundsville State Penitentiary. It is known worldwide for being one of the bloodiest prisons and most haunted places on earth. While at the Penitentiary we were able to conduct a radio interview with PBS, and shoot two gorgeous models with the help of a great group of photographers and a great tour guide named Ryan Britt.
I want to send out a sincere thanks to everyone that came and a special thanks to Vanden King and Faye Santos for helping make this a success. This image was shot with the help of two Pocket Wizards that fired my SB910 speedlight which was located in the cell to the left of the model Yvonne. I put my Ray flash attachment onto my speedlight so it would better disperse the light. I then used two flashlights (thanks to those that held them) with one light on the stripes on her dress from the left with the other on her face from the right. That's how we did it!
