Heartland Living

Our publication inserts a quarterly magazine into the newspaper called Heartland Living. For my assignments in the spring edition are stories featuring community yoga classes and a school about mixed martial arts. Illustrating these stories visually is a fun challenge. The lead photo is of yoga instructor Bonnie Bellamy. The photo is taken with a Canon 1DX Mark II camera with a 24-70 f2.8 zoom lens. And lit with three remote Canon speedlites.
