These photos actually happened the first night of BAPR. I have brought the ABR800 Ring Flash with me to WPPI a couple of times now, and this was the first time I had actually used it. There is a special relationship with Reno and flags to me, it was an image of her on her Instagram of her holding up a flag which originally compelled me to contact her. The image by Jack Millen (you can find it in here) really struck a chord with me. It is graceful, and has a certain feeling of angsty American youth thrown in. It made me want to know her.
Sometimes I think people wonder a little why I like to shoot the same people over and over again. With Reno I feel like I have just scratched the surface of her amazingness.
Nikki came in at the end to help faux drown her. That’s one way to clean a dusty model.
