This year I plan to shoot more than ever and will up my game in the social media world. I am compiling a list of subjects for my campaign. I really wish Instagram allowed you to have separate sections in one account so I could display my images in a more cohesive way by subject. But, I guess that is what my website is for! I am hoping to draw more Instagrammers to my website, and of course get some web hits from Facebook as well. Let's be honest, I need some customers from those hits!
I really would love to shoot plenty of portrait sessions this year. There is something so special about meeting someone, shooting their photograph and telling their story within a 10-60 minute time span.
I had about 30 minutes with the client above, who is an author. I setup lights, cleaned up the environs and made sure to bring out his personality all in a matter of minutes. I used two strobes and two diffused umbrellas for this shot and really wanted to make sure there were not any distracting shadows to take away from the background. I had to edit and send the photos his way within a few hours. I really love working under tight deadlines.
I photographed this image for Concierge Physicians. I had about 10 minutes in between the doctor's appointment to get the shot. I also had to retouch and send the best photos on the same day. Here, I shot with only one external on-camera flash and bounced the light off the low ceiling to get some nice light spread.
