I have been a subscriber to many of UK based Imagine Publishing’s magazines from Advanced Photoshop to my current favorite Digital Photographer Magazine. You can imagine how happy I was when I opened this month’s Digital Photographer Issue 167 and turned to page 12 to see one of my images published within.
This particular image of amateur model Melissa Ann Scott was requested for publication from my image gallery on Digital Photographer Magazine’s website by one of the magazine’s editors.
The flower crown was constructed by my wife Sharon Akey (http://curiosnthings.com) from various flowers purchased at the dollar store. I made the dress from some tulle that I purchased at a local fabric store.
The photo was captured in my commercial studio Akey Photography Studio (ApS) during a portfolio shoot with Melissa. The scene was lit with a single Alien Bees B800 fitted with a gridded octabox. Captured with Canon 5D Mark II and Canon EF24-70mm f/2.8L lens.
