Outdoor Shoot for a Dancer Don't let anyone convince you not to shoot at high noon. Proper positioning and flash location are crucial for directional lighting and control of the shadows. Harsh light can be good light. I'd much prefer harnessing the direct sunlight than settling for a flat boring look from a cloudy day. 

Below are some shots taken in Fort Lee of a Professional Dancer names Constance, originally from Paris now touring in various NY Dance Productions.

Is There a Doctor in the House? Apparently dressing the part greatly increases the chances of getting it. This was for an Actor named Renata.

Fun with my son! Jonah is coming out with a new album soon. The rough cuts sound great so far. We had this idea of shooting in the street by a piano striped crosswalk and turning it into an epic photo. Here is the result!

Executive Headshot Light Setup and Diagram It's always good practice to plan and prepare lighting setups for client work. Here's a breakdown of the lighting for a recent Executive Headshot. The main light was a Paul C. Buff Einstein with a 4ft by 2.5 ft softbox placed approximately 3 feet away from the subject. Opposite that was a white reflector for fill. Main light registered at F8 with fill side at F5.6. An Alien Bee 800 with a grided 12x48 stripbox was used back right corner for hair and rim light. Another Alien Bee 800 was used for the background (Savage Thundergray) with a 20' grid to provide a circle and contain the light. Placement is key to get the soft edge of the light showing and not the harsh middle spot. This adds nice separation. Another reflector was used in front and below the chin to fill in some shadows underneath.  Shot with a Nikon D750 and Nikon 70-200 f4. Exposure was F8, 1/125, 112mm, ISO 200.

Before and After Sunset at a Park On a recent trip to St Louis I toured Forrest Park; the Central Park of St. Louis. It is quite scenic and expansive complete with a Zoo, Museums, Theaters and a Golf Course. As the sun was setting and beautiful light begging to be photographed, I borrowed a local to make a couple of exposures. One was 30 seconds before the sun set, the other a few minutes after.
