Rhode Island Portrait Project Dean Logan: behind the curtain


I am very proud of this portrait of Dean Logan which was taken in the court room at Roger Williams Law School. Here are the technical details of how it was created.

The lens I used was an 85 mm set to F6.3 shutter 1/80th ISO 400

Using an orange filter on my main light which was about 5 feet away and set camera left and shot through an umbrella. A second light was set about 12 feet back and shot through a spot grid to keep the light set on just him and not spill out and cause lens flair. You can see the effect of this light over his shoulder camera right. I adjusted the white balance in camera to that light turned the chairs blue but left Dean Logan natural looking. You can see what the photo looked like with no added lights and with the lights firing
