In the dense woods of Knoxville, not much natural light gets through. We chose to light her with a single source, color matched to keep the background slightly warm. This separates her from the background but allows the lighting to still feel natural and welcoming.
Even though Kaysee races around the world (Transylvania, Patagonia, and a number of other exotic locations) we chose her home turf, South-Knoxville, TN for these photos.
This is the place where she cut her teeth on mountain biking, even sometimes spending entire days riding one feature just to be sure her approach was dialed.
