I'm still working on this lighting stuff. These were done with my A7III, 85mm 1.8, using a Cactus trigger which fired a Cactus flash as the key light on subject left. Also, there was another flash fired by a Cactus trigger (subject right) and then a light on the floor behind the subjects aimed at the ceiling - I had run out of garage sale modifiers at that point.

Very excited to post the first image (of many) from my first time working with local model LaTisha Harris. She completely owned that space in front of the camera from the moment we said "go". Not only is she stunningly beautiful but she's a total pro! We got through three different looks (in two locations) in like no time and had a great time while doing so. Many more images to come from our session over the next few days.

Underexposed the foreground, then used luminosity masks to blow out the sky in the background and darken the silhouette.

Quick photoshoot for my wife for her President’s Meritorious Service Awards Ceremony. She's one of the 25 recipients out of about 20k employees of Texas A&M. I'm proud of her!.
'Quick', because the photo deadline was yesterday and we only had about 1,5 hours before the deadline (last minute customer 😁) . Window light.

Congrats on the PMSA!

After posting one of our 2018 photos last week, Colleen and I decided it was time to get together and create some new work. Here's the first of many new shots that will be showing up in my feed over coming days. I love the look of this dress as the shimmery material of makes it appear almost oil painted. This skirt really moved well too and we got some great captures of it in motion as moved.

Long time no post! I took a small break from photography, and then we had a lockdown, but I finally got back to shooting last weekend with a fashion shoot in the Leake Street Arches in London. Natural light. A7iii with the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 and the Sony 85mm f/1.8.

Portrait of my priest. I bounced the flash off the wall behind me to soften the light.

Great image of this beautifully striking lady! I appreciate that you used the 85mm lens for closer shots and the 35mm for wider, environmental portraits. I usually don't like rough backgrounds with lots of graffiti but, that background really contrasts with the sharp appearance of this lady.
