Business Headshots – Lighting Considerations

Be wary of business headshot photographers (or any portrait photographers for that matter) who proudly promote themselves as “natural light photographers” (this can sometimes translate into “I am a one trick pony and I don’t know how to correctly use flash”).  There is nothing wrong with natural light portraits if coupled with studio lights and […]

Twin Falls, SC

Pickens County, SC – I lugged my camera up to the top of this 75′ waterfall yesterday…Bent like coathangers by a flood in 1928, these twisted railroad tracks are the only fingerprints marking the existence of the now-defunct Appalachian Lumber Company.  A sobering reminder of nature’s awesomeness.  After staring at them for several minutes, I […]

Sultana

Sultana: A couple of images from a shoot last week… I was captivated by the saris, the bangles and the lighting.  We stopped shooting once twilight hit.  Not because of the darkness (I had plenty of strobes handy), but because my fingers (and her face) were starting to freeze as the temperatures plummeted into the […]
