when your assistant monkeys around during lighting check
When doing lighting setup and checks, I am focused completely on how the light is hitting my test model, where it is falling off, and any shadows produced. In the moment, I don’t even notice my test model’s poses or expressions. So, it was a fun surprise to find this series of my assistant monkeying around.
Thanks Mandy for doing such a great job helping me capture fantastic poses of dogs at our Pet Portraits Benefitting City Dogs Rescue sessions. And many thanks to District Veterinary Hospital for hosting the event.
I work with a lot of kids and their families, but I do not often have the opportunity to photograph a newborn. This past June I had the joy of photographing Isaac with his parents in their cozy apartment home. At just 10-days-old (plus an extra 7 days in utero), Isaac was ready for his debut photo shoot.
The set includes shots of candid moments…
… as well as planned images composed under controlled lighting in a living-room-turned-makeshift-studio.
I hope that the resulting series of photographs clearly reveal the warmth and love that I easily observed on Isaacs tenth day.
