Tamara Brown – Ever Green Ecological Services

Posted by ryanjackson on Jul 13, 2009 in lighting, photos |


Tamara Brown, the Woman of Vision for August, is the founder and owner of Ever Green Ecological Services. Fresh out of university, she and a friend started a little recycling subscription route with a pickup truck and trailer and quickly signed up 400 customers. Five years later, they have a staff of 50 and 40 full-size garbage trucks servicing 19 municipalities around Edmonton and are updating their processing plant to rival the City of Edmonton’s.

To light these images I used a 48-inch umbrella on the left with a 580EX and I had a 550ex hidden in the background with a light green gel on it. I normally use the green gel for balancing my flash with fluorescent lights but in this case it worked well for making the light green background “pop” even greener.

There was a large translucent garage door off to the right bringing in nice soft daylight. The umbrella acted more as a fill light for her left side.

The image in front of the garbage truck was an accidental winner. I took a whole bunch of photos of her with flashes and the ONE image where my flashes didn’t go off turned out the best. Sometimes mistakes are better than intentions.
