Another 7-inch reflector with barn doors lit the background. No fill was used. (SUBJECT—Jeannie Wong Slaughter; DATE—2003; CAMERA—Mamiya RZ67; FILM—Fuji NPS, ISO 160; LENS—140mm) FACING PAGE—Photographed at the Winona School of Photography in 1988, the arms of four students were used as a frame for the model’s face.
