It's pure coincidence that the first two high key photography shoots I have done have been two female models with dreadlocks. It was a lot easier then I thought it was going to be once I had the right equipment. Because I shoot night life most of the time, it came as a bit of surprise how shooting in a controlled environment changes things so much. I was able to take less shots, allow the models to pose, and take the next shot. It was very pleasant and much slower paced.
I wanted to have absolute control of my lighting so the regular house lights went off and my wireless flashes went on. Call it what you like, but I found that it is still easier for me to focus in the dark.
