I took this series of photos of Anna Trusk close to sunset on a cold winter day at The Windsor Suites in Center City, Philadelphia. It was an overcast day, and the shadows produced by the tall buildings while on the suite's balcony, created a fantastic setting for a moody portrait. The structures provided an exciting backdrop, notably as a black-white photo with the contrast and shadow details increased. I find all the varying shades of grey do not take away from Anna as it would in color. I used a generic speed light with a radio trigger held by a human light stand to provide some fill light, reducing the shadows into Anna's face.
