Hi and welcome back.
Right before Christmas, Elizabeth came into the studio for a few updated headshots.
She chose one of my longer sittings so we had a lot of time to do a bunch of different looks and lighting scenarios.
Let’s get to it!
All shots Nikon D3, 105 f/2 DC Lens
Here’s the BTS of our initial shots. I love the simplicity of a single light portrait with a reflector.
All strobes Hensel Integra 500’s. Chimera 36×48 softbox as key, California Sunbounce Micro Mini as fill, Creative Light 1×4 strip softboxes for background, Hensel 20 degree grid.
Here’s a proof:
Once we knocked out the simple shot, we went to One Light High Key. I love shooting this look against a white wall as it is so simple yet effective. Pose your subject right against the wall, set your light and reflector in one place, and then work around your subject for multiple looks.
Finally, since the weather was so nice just before the holiday, we shot a few frames outside. I have this small alcove that is just perfect for this look. I use the natural light coming in from above for hair and a silver reflector for bounced light as key.
Here’s a proof from outside. I love shooting this look.
That’s it! Shooting with Elizabeth was a joy. She chose the longer sitting so we had ample time to get amazing shots under a multitude of lighting setups.
Need headshots, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Till next time, if you are in the path of winter storm Hercules, happy shoveling out!!
If you are where it’s warm, I’m jealous!
