Covering Scena Theater: Press Photos for the Productions of ‘Shining City’ and ‘Molly’.

Shining City, directed by Robert McNamara and featuring Lee Ordeman, Ron Litman, Ellie Nicoll, and Kevin O’Reilly, is about a Dublin man who is convinced he sees the ghost of his dead wife and seeks the counsel of a psychologist […]

Balmy Thursday Night

Joseph has been assisting me in the past few shoots and came over today for some test shots, as I had recently purchased another AB800. We tested some lighting setups and quite liked the output! All were shot @ f/6.3 and 1/125 sec shutter speed on a Canon 5DII.

Models Can Be Scary…

Christina came over today for a quick headshot – a great excuse to practice more lighting. First image was shot with a Canon 5DII and a 70-200 mm f/4L @ 105mm and f/9. Beauty dish up and slightly camera right feathered slightly with a large softbox below (think clamshell). Reflector camera left to add highlights to the hair. This next image was also shot with a Canon 5DII and a 70-200 mm f/4L. It was created @ 94mm and f/9. Same […]

Christina in Purple

Back with a few more pictures with Christina, this time in varying degrees of purple. I played around with the idea of giving her a purple undertone to her hair in the first image and think it works. Images were taken with a Canon 5DII and Sigma 85 f/1.4 @ ISO 100, f/4.5, 1/125s lit with two AB800s – one with a beauty dish and the other with a large softbox.

Christina’s Red Dress

I had the pleasure of photographing an old friend today and the results were stunning and very dramatic. Most of the images were only color corrected – the fourth image had exposure and curve masks applied. Images were taken with a Canon 5DII and Sigma 85 f/1.4 @ ISO 100, f/3.2-4.5, 1/125s lit with two AB800s – one with a beauty dish and the other with a large softbox.
