More in my series showing the behind the scenes of portrait sessions. Working with pretty people always helps… Lucky for me I had a beautiful woman to work with. I was using 3 lights for this portrait. two up and behind her about 5 feet away from her with no modifiers on them at all, just the speed ring/reflectors. For those of you aren’t photographers that is just a small silver ring to generally point the light one direction. I was shooting in an office building see the florecent lights and power strip on the wall … I just over powered the lights in the room with my lights so you aren’t seeing any of those in the final shot. My main light which was a light shot thru an umbrella was set up above her and to my right but as close as I could get it to her about maybe 3 feet away, because I wanted that light to be as soft as possible. I used the regular green wall as a backdrop. We ended up with a dramatic image! Dig it!
Here is a recent portrait I did. I am very happy with what we got! Yes that swan was really there… Here is how we got the photo. Linda and her son were were near the edge of the water. The boy was sitting on a stool Mom standing behind him. It was about 3:00 in the afternoon on this mid April very cloudy day. The sun was coming from up high and behind them, but very diffused because of the heavy cloud cover. I had a light set about 6 feet away from them about 6 feet in the air off to their left and just a bit in front of them. The light was going through an umbrella. See the diagram I made. Sorry about the terrible drawing…
I had the pleasure of photographing a very talented model this weekend. These photos of Brianna I think are really beautiful. Thank you to Ed Lefkowicz for letting me use his lights and for helping with the shoot. We worked well together and I hope to do it again soon. It is worth noting that the photos at the end of the end of the day were taken down by the Point Judith Lighthouse in Narragansett RI and it was REALLY windy and REALLY cold but Brianna was a totally good sport about it and jumped right in without even the smallest complaint. I think we ended up with some spectactular photos because of it.
