I did another quick set of portraits for musician Deacon Frye at Madelife today. Pretty simple light setup, with a 36″ softbox for the keylight and a strip softbox for the fill.
I’m prepping to do a shoot this afternoon for Cornerstone Apartments, which you can see photos from my last shoot with them here! <-- a="" click="" me="">. It should be a fun shoot on a beautiful day. -->
Yesterday I did a quick portrait shoot with musician Josh White at Madelife, the creative incubator where I work part time as a photography mentor.
He said he wanted something dark, simple, black & white, and low key. The back room at Madelife is painted black, so dark is easy. I used a single constant light in a 36″ softbox to get the desired effect. I pointed the light away from Josh so that it just skimmed his face. I’d been wanting to create something like this for a while. I’m happy with the results.
