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 â€œArmy bratâ€ 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 bachelorâ€™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, â€œSocial Media and the Army,â€ 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.
I kept things real simple and used two lights (one high and one low) to hit the background and shot into at 45″ Photoflex white satin umbrella as my main light. Under most circumstances, I really like this white satin reversible umbrella with a bit of silver in the weave which creates a nice contrast. However, I think the specularity can be a bit too much on some skin tones and I’m curious to try out an optical white umbrella see if it makes a big difference.
