Sandi Tyus
Owner, Murphy's Restaurant
Florence, AZ ~ 7:30 PM on 4.20.1999

Pete Ensenberger, Photo Editor for Arizona Highways assigned me to shoot a series of portraits of people in Florence, AZ including this one of Sandi Tyus.

This location was used as the drugstore in the 1985 movie Murphy's Romance.

Strobist / Lighting info: Dynalites
Main light: medium Chimera, camera right.
(2) 10" reflectors to light the left side of the building.
(1) Bare strobe inside restaurant to create shadows on the ground. Several tungsten clip lights inside to raise the ambient lighting.
(2) 10" reflectors outside (on high stands) - one aimed at the awning area and above, one aimed at the tree (see the shadows of the leaves on the building).
We were working fast so I let the florescent lights go green in store next door.
