I had the opportunity to photograph Stanford women’s basketball coach Tara Vanderveer off the court. At her home in Menlo Park, California, she relaxed at her piano and outdoors with her dogs.
Her living room was a bit tricky lighting wise. One end of the piano was lit by a large bay window. Behind her was a hallway with a very bright skylight. The rest of the room had tungsten lighting. After shooting a bit with the available light, I added one Dynalite strobe bouncing off the far wall and ceiling. It added just enough light to even things out and allow me to shoot freely.
Outdoors, an overcast sky gave a nice soft light to Tara and her dogs.
