Fitness Gal

Recently I had the pleasure of shooting with Jessica, who is a certified personal trainer and all-around fitness buff. To say Jessica is a committed fitness enthusiast would be – well – an understatement! After spending a day with her in the studio, I feel pretty embarrassed about my own meager attempts at exercise and fitness. 

Please click on any each image in this post to see it LARGER and clearer on your screen. 

Jessica wanted some images to use for promoting her services as a physical trainer. In some of the images, we used high contrast dramatic lighting to show off the sculpting of her body and the results of all her hard work. 

In the image above, I had lights on either side of Jessica but no lighting from the front. 

By the way, there was no Photoshop help with her muscles – these are for real!

Thanks for a great shoot, Jessica.

Katie in the New Studio

As loyal readers will recall, I had a large studio space in an office building in Connecticut for 8 years. When we moved to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, I set up a dedicated home studio. Katie, pictured here, was my first subject in the new studio space. 

By the way, click on any image in this post to see it LARGER and clearer. This works on a computer, a tablet or a phone.  

Katie, who teaches at a local school here on the island, was a joy to work with. I’m hoping we’ll be able to shoot again!

The new studio space worked well. I don’t have all of the lights and other gear from my  studio space in Connecticut, but sometimes less is more. With a simpler approach to lighting, I can concentrate more on making a strong image. 

I’m ready to take on new clients in Hilton Head now – either in the home studio, at a client’s home or business, or outside – including the beach!  

Thanks for a great shoot, Katie!

Christina-245-950px-Edit

Last week, I did headshots for a dear friend and one of my favorite subjects. Christina is an opera singer and needed updated headshots for auditions and also a new personal website.  She has just finished a successful summer of concerts and training with the Asheville (NC) Lyric Opera Young Artist Program, as one of just six singers chosen to participate.

We photographed these images with window light in the background.  The style of headshots for opera singers today is moving away from solid white background. In these portraits, I used a narrow depth of field so the window frame and the greenery outside would go out of focus and thus not distract from the main subject.

Faithful readers will recall other photographs I’ve taken of Christina.  If you do a search for “Christina” in the search box to the right, you’ll see some earlier posts with images of her as well as a link to a video we created together.

Wishing Christina all the best in her budding opera career!
