For this shoot I decided to use widow light for a very natural look and shallow depth-of-field.
Chicago Headshot Photography: Model Taylor Anderson’s Compcard – Strip softboxes shaped the light for this shot in my elevator, then we created a catalog look in my Southloop studio.
I am always searching for new ways to light my subjects, and with every shoot, I seek to perfect my technique. Recently I started using a Westcott ‘7 Parabolic Umbrella. After a few test shoots, I rolled out the umbrella for this headshot with teen female model Cosette Tomita. Using a giant softbox overhead to give Cosette’s hair a little kick and some overhead fill, I had the model strike several different poses, including this jumping shot below.
