Have not been posting as much on here but I would like to run through a few photos of recent work. Figuring that next week (30th) is my bday I thought I would do a “My month in photos”. So here it goes.
Doing assignments where I don’t have a lot of time to set up lighting before the subject gets irritated is something I have become pretty OK at. It has given me the chance to really take charge in situations and get my lighting down to a specific science.
These two shots are from two separate shoots that I did awhile back. The set up is simple, one light (Sb-600) fired off camera with a Pocket Wizard Plus X and shot through an umbrella. The light was set to the side of the subjects and raised a little, nothing too crazy for these shots.
For this photo I was getting kind of “bored” trying to take regular portraits so I decided to frame the guy in golf clubs (he does golf club art). I though this would provide some more “story” to the photo overall. The speed light was camera left and set at 70mm to really have a focused been of light, or as much as I could shooting through an umbrella.
And for this the light was camera right, shot with a wider aperture to take away from the distracting background. Of course I still wanted some of the environment in my photo; this is one that I really had to just shoot on the fly, no thinking. The company was in the middle of making meals so the time slot I had was very small.
Nothing too fancy, just your everyday lit portraits.
