Service Members – Day 16

Here’s one of my last members of the military civilian corps, Ms. Chondra Perry.

Chondra was raised by a single mother and is an “Army brat” who has lived in six different states, and even spent a year in Europe.

Chondra attended Texas StateUniversity in San Marcos, Texas where she received a bachelor’s of exercise sports science and a master of arts in mass communication.

After graduation, Chondra started her public affairs career in Feb. 2009 at Fort Hood, Texas as a Department of the Army public affairs intern.

She recently accepted a position as a marketing and public affairs specialist with the Brooke Army Medical Center public affairs office.

Chondra’s first article, “Social Media and the Army,” was recently published in Military Review Magazine in the March/April issue and she looks forward to watching the Army flourish in the social environment..

“I love the Army, and I am truly thankful for those Soldiers and Families who sacrifice everyday!” said Chondra.

    Nice – you had a wind machine (fan) on, right? Interesting that you a triple light reflection in her eyes. 3 light setup?

    Thanks Gina, and they may have come a little too sharp in full version.

    Christian – no wind machine, just Chondra with her hair tied back and a rim light on a black background. It’s actually a 4 light setup with three strobes hitting her in the front. I used a beauty dish high as my main light and shot through two umbrellas as low as I could get them for even fill across her face.

    Very nice. Perfect exposure on her face. My only advice is that you could have increased or moved the hair light. Her dark hair blends in a little to much with the black background. I’m guessing the hair light is directly behind her back. You might try moving it up above the frame.
