Headshots in a Home Studio

I had the opportunity to shoot this young lady a few weeks ago. I set up some lights in my house and used one of my walls as the background. The lighting was done with two Hensel studio strobes and an SB900 flash set to slave mode. The last image in the gallery shows the lighting setup with the two main strobes on either side and the flash pointing up through a diffuser just in front of the subject. A few shots were done with a single strobe to the left of the camera, and a few with the other two lights included. Shot on a Nikon D800e with an 80-200mm lens in the 160-200mm range at f/3.5… and a Sofia the First work table...

Jenny and Bill

I first met Jenny a few years ago when she built the secret igloo. It was a really cool project that helped raise money for the school where my sister works, Celebrate the Children. The igloo was made from colored ice blocks which created a beautiful effect and made for some great images. We connected on Facebook and when Jenny and Bill got engaged, they reached out to me to see if I would be interested in shooting their wedding. Even though I explained that it wasn’t really my main job, they were excited to work with me and I knew, with their creativity, it would be an awesome day. The weather wasn’t great, but the details were. From the hand-painted utensils, to the folded paper bouquets, to the happy-tear hankies, to the custom glasses created for everyone… not to mention Bill’s anvil and Jenny’s hoops! And, as luck would have it, we got a few minutes as the sun was setting, where it broke through the clouds and gave us a spectacular sky to work with. I’m glad I was able to be part of their day and capture some moments that they will never...
