This shoot was a bit different from what I normally have for work.
Michael is running for selectman board... at only twenty years old! so he needed some shots for his campaign, and for press.
I wanted to give him some pretty standard head shots, something that says, im young, but im serious about what I want to do. (i didnt want to post the boring standard head shots, so i posted some of the less drull images)
Anyway, so we did a bunch of different lighting techniques for this. I will just do the run through of a few of the unedited images ill be posting.
All lighting on this one is profoto compact 300s - canon mark 2 1ds - canon 70-200 2.8 L
First shot - Split lighting with 2 3x4 soft boxes - f14 or 16 - iso 100 - at a 160th
Second shot - half lit one 3x4 soft box - shot at f18 125th iso 100 - model turned toward the light
Third shot - two bare bulbs at full power about 3 feet above the model pointed around shoulder area, one 3x4 soft box at half power boomed above the model at about a 60 degree angle
Fourth Shot - Third shot - two bare bulbs at low power about 3 feet above the model pointed around back of head area, one 3x4 soft box at low power boomed above the model at about a 60 degree angle - shot at f5.6-8.0 using the 70-200 with the extender so shot at about 400mm - at iso L (low) - trying to get a darker - more selectively lit DOF type of shot.
