Brunette in the Snow

Brunette in the Snow

Heading out to the woods at 10 Fahrenheit for a photo shoot isn’t always a pleasant stroll. But this time it turned out to be just that. Being prepared and planning your shot ahead meant that we only had to spend a few minutes out before heading back to the car, coffee and heather-on waiting for us. The shot was taken at a park in Plainfield, IL. The camera, the mighty Fujifilm X-E1 fitted with the powerful, sharp 60mm XF prime lens.

Thidwick, The Band


A friend asked me to come up with a few shots to advertise his cover band Thidwick, and to get a nice ad for his merchandise. I decided for clean front pictures for the apparel. I also had more lights and modifiers than usual. For this shot, my beloved 300ws through a double baffled rectangular softbox as a main light, a gold reflector, hair light, and a homemade continuous light. This last one resulting in a nice blue hue to the background. 

Yes, I could have achieved the same with two lights, maybe, and more digital darkroom work. But hey, a man can only spend so much time on the computer and I am almost out of Starbucks Keurig cups. The final result, a somewhat purist photo approach.
