I had a lot of fun with this shoot… it took a little bit of time getting the dress and the hair just right. I used two light for this shot, a beauty dish right above the camera and a second light illuminating the white wall behind her.
I recently had the pleasure of shooting saxophonist Jafar Idris. It was nice making a series of headshots showcasing an instrument I played in high school.
Compcards: Male Model Troy Z has a strong look and can keep you from turning the page whether hes staring back at you or laughing in his headshots and photography portfolio.
For this Chicago black and white headshot series featuring models Robin Cook, Eric Luchen and Matthew Cuff, I decided to use natural light, augmented with reflectors, and fast prime lenses shot wide open to blur the background.
Model and dancer Raphael noted, “I am not as strong as I look in those pics, in my daily life. Unless I’m teaching dance in the ghetto.”
