St. Louis Magazine Photography: Last week the USGA hired me to travel to Greenbriar Hills Country Club in Kirkwood Missouri and do an environmental portrait photoshoot with golfer Jayne Watson, who the organization was given a life long achievement award.
My approach for the magazine photography photoshoot was fairly simple… look for beautiful fall scenes that were backlit and then light Jayne’s face with a 39″ (100cm) Elinchrome Rotalux Softbox Deep Octa 100, which is hands down my favorite modifier. This was also my second photoshoot using my new Canon EOS 1DX Mark II professional camera and I have to say, so far, I am in love with the sensor. The dynamic range of the camera allowed me to easily correct the color of the sky and retain detail in all of the shadows.
