I was in a retro mood and I was talking with a model who just happened to have a nice retro wardrobe when I had the idea of a B&W image with the exception of the color red. Don't ask me why red, maybe it's because I love red cars, red camera bags, and all that is scarlet (and gray). So Abby shows up with a wonderful dress and a fantastic red flower for her hair. I realize I'm going to have to light that sucker up or it will blend in with the black and grey and not stand out. A large grid lit too much of her head or a spot on the wall. So, I grabbed a new toy out of my bag. The 16° stack worked out perfect! It saved the day! For more info on the Rogue Grid, check out ExpoImaging's site.
To see the image of Abby, check out my post from a couple weeks ago: http://strobeohio.blogspot.com/2011/05/whats-black-white-red-all-over.html
