Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, Alissa Shaneson {New Jersey Photographer-Tim Shahady}

When Alissa e-mailed that she wanted some new photos for her website I was very excited to work with her.  She’s a great teacher (that’ll kick your butt) and I was hoping to capture some of the intensity of her style.

As a yoga teacher myself, I am fascinated by the various schools of yoga and the incredible diversity of methods used to help students find what they want.

You can go visit Alissa’s site at : to get more information and a schedule of classes.

For this shoot we had two Alien Bee B800s available and a few speedlights.  I didn’t end up using all of the lights at any one time, but most shots have one Bee and one Speedlight set up.
