Georgetown Fair Queen Portrait Session Behind the Scenes with Heather Simpson

It's been a busy fall for Josh and Joe Travels and we've made several trips to Illinois to photograph Miss Georgetown Fair 2017 Heather Simpson. As the official photographers of the Georgetown Fair Queen we are responsible for producing the queen's official portrait and headshot for use at the Miss Illinois State Fair Queen Pageant, plus we do lots of pictures with the queen for promotional purposes.

Earlier this year we shared with you some behind the scenes with 2016 Queen Sarah Sigmon, so we wanted to give you an update with 2017 Queen Heather Simpson. We've mentioned this before, but shooting white seamless on location is challenging and takes a ton of gear, but we think it is worth the effort and we can't wait for you to see some of the pictures we've been doing with Heather. In our recent shoots with Heather we've started using a large 53 inch deep umbrella with front diffusion as our main light and we like the results. We've been combining that deep umbrella with a medium octa for fill, plus you'll still see us move in the smaller rapid boxes at times. When it comes to the white seamless we've been putting four lights on the background, with two of them up high into umbrellas. The other two are low and pointed across the lower section of the background and flagged with black foamcore.

We can't wait for you to see more pictures from our recent shoots with Queen Heather, so keep an eye on the Georgetown Fair Queen website, the Georgetown official facebook page, and check back right here for pictures of Heather with Josh and Joe Travels!
