Rhode Island portrait project behind the curtain Pier Cleaners

Briand Fish of Pier Cleaners for the Rhode Island Portrait Project

The first photo of Brian Being splashed by the SUV was taken outside in a real puddle and he REALLY got doused as you can see.

The shot was done with all natural lighting ISO 800 I wanted a SUPER fast shutter speed to make sure that I stopped the water in place as it was hitting him so that is why I chose such a high ISO. Plus the Nikon D700 I shoot on makes very sharp images even at that high of an ISO so no problem… I took it on my 70-200 VR zoom set to 190 mm Aperture of 2.8 with a shutter speed of 1/600th! Here is a set up shot to show you what the parking lot looked like

 

The second shot was taken inside an apartment using a white sheet for a background and 3 speed lights and Pocket wizards used to trigger the speed lights. 50mm lens set at aperture 3.5     shutter 1/100th    Iso 100

You can see the two rear lights here in this set up shot. One set on the floor pointed up at Brian to define his legs and also add a little fill light on his face bouncing off the ceiling, and the other to define him on the top.

And here is a full on set up shot

Meredith and Charles are wonderful people! I was very pleased to have the honor of photographing their wedding at Trinity Church in Newport and then moving on to photograph the reception at Regatta Place on Goat Island.
