Bella Torgerson is not only a great student photographer in our office, but she can also also pull off the toughest modeling gigs. We were tasked with creating a photo illustration for a news release on the increase of profanity in teen literature. I wanted to get a look of extreme shock as she was reading a book. Having her hair flying behind her sounded like a good idea, at the time. First we tried to blow the hair back with a big fan used for drying carpets, but we didn’t like the results.

Gravity became our best friend, we had Bella lie down on a table and then we shot the photo sideways, and turned it in post. here is a quick behind the scenes photo. Thankfully Alison Fidel kept Bella from sliding off the table. Just another fun day at BYU University Photography.
