Chicago portrait photographer: Monochrome Models

Chicago Portrait Photographer compcard

Chicago portrait photographer: Before the repatriation of my friend Vic Picolotto to his native Australia, to work for hairdressing giant Tracey Hughes Education, we decided to get in a few Black & White headshot shoots in Chicago while we still could!

I decided to use a variety of hard light sources to sculpt the light for these B&W portraits. However most of the hair is light from above and behind with a softbox.

For the next two images I used a 10-degree grid spot that was masked down to a narrow strip, which I then placed just out of the frame, to highlight the models’ faces.
