Yesterday morning I had a professional headshot shoot with Caitlin Mangum, a local on-camera reporter. It was a great day for it with good natural lighting. The Downtown Decatur area provided us with many excellent locations to use as backdrops for the photos. I am pleased to say that I think we achieved the balance of business and casual feels that she was looking for in her headshots.

Last night I had the pleasure of working with local singer Kenneith Perrin who has just returned to Atlanta after a performance in LA. He needed some album cover and updated promo photos for his new CD. The shoot was a lot of fun and it was also cool to hang out with someone else who is new to the Atlanta area. We got a lot of great shots on a few different backgrounds and lighting arrangements in the studio. One fun idea we tried was to have him pretend to sing with the lighting equipment set up to provide a 'spotlight' effect. I wanted to share a couple of the shots here on my blog:

You can learn more about Kenneith and hear some of his music at his Reverb Nation Page.

Fun With Lighting

I did a mock fashion shoot last night in the studio with Teagan to test out my new solid black seamless background and barndoor/honeycomb diffuser. I played around with a few different lighting arrangements before settling on this one which I'll probably be using somewhat regularly with fashion shoots from now on. It's a simple setup with the honeycomb on the main strobe at a roughly 45 degree angle with very little fill light.
