Brett Warren is a Nashville based photographer whose work is at once charming, beautiful, and rich with details that really tell a story. He was recently profiled in Native Magazine and he shot a series especially for them, inspired by the theme of the issue, green and sustainability.

He writes:

I had wanted to shoot a story inspired by the porcelain figurines that you find at thrift stores, or your grandparent’s curio cabinets, for some time. As far as technique goes, I wanted to be sure and illuminate the girl’s skin to create a shiny highlight that could be translated as porcelain.

I used my trusty PocketWizard Plus II atop my camera to communicate with the built in PocketWizard on my Profoto AcuteB2 kit. It always communicates instantly, and makes for an easy-going shoot with perfect lighting every time. I let the sun flood the back of her head, and filled the front with directional strobe light for an ethereal feel.
