It’s all in the details. 

Location portraiture.

the last couple of weeks have been challenging and fun, learning how to act quick and adjust to ones location has been challenging. Each situation has presented a unique opportunity to capture a great image and working on location is now less daunting than before! 

 A few weeks ago during our architectural module at school we got the opportunity to go and shoot the Frank Gehry building at M.I.T in Cambridge, as Gehry is my favorite architect this was a treat! i have never been overly interested in this avenue of photography but with this opportunity how could i not be? Having unbridled access to the building was great we could shoot anywhere, i learned a lot that day and thought i took some awesome! photos, what do you think ?  

I think i have started to finally get a feeling for what i would like to focus on as a photographer, turns out i really enjoy taking portraits, something about a beautifully lit composed shot really makes me happy, Melanie is in my class and seeing how my class is quite small she gets to be our subject more often than not, being extremely photogenic helps a bit as well. This shot was taken with two canon speedlights off camera. To the subjects right was a 580ex II (main light)  set to 1/4 power reflected off a white umbrella and the second 580ex II (fill light) was at a 45 degree angel to the subjects left in front of her set to 1/32 power reflected off a silver umbrella, while it is a relatively simple set up it works quite well for the effect i was going for. Thanks again to Melanie from www.mluphotography.com for being such a patient subject.
