3 Lighting Setups in 3 Minutes

Back at it again, this time with 3 simple lighting setups in 3 minutes. Check out the video below to watch how the images were created:

And here are a few of the images we created that day:

All of the images were shot using the Fuji X-Pro2 + XF 56mm f/1.2 and edited using my CUSTOM LIGHTROOM PRESETS which you can check out by CLICKING HERE.

Dr. Gregor Wolbring for Technologist Magazine

In January I was hired by Technologist Magazine, a publication based out of Switzerland, to photograph Dr. Gregor Wolbring. The editorial they were writing outlined Dr. Wolbring's research into prosthetics and the positive and negative psychological impacts that they can have on the people who use them. The only art direction they could provide was that they wanted the photo to be shot on a plain background, and that a solid head shot would be great but feel free to do whatever I think would make for a great shot. Within a millisecond of meeting Dr. Wolbring and knowing what the editorial was about, this is the photo I knew I was going to shoot.

After taking over a faculty lunch room for a makeshift studio space, and spending 10 minutes with Dr. Wolbring in front of my camera, this is what we walked away with. Clean, simple, and one of my favorite portraits so far of 2015.

The Texture Series | Personal Work

Just over a year ago I decided I wanted to do a series of black and white portraits that were simple and honest. No styling, no hair/makeup, no heavy retouching, just simple portraits. Thus, the Texture Series was born. This will be an on-going series, so more portraits will be added over time, but as of right now, this is where the collection stands.

All of the images were shot using the Fuji X-Pro1 + XF 35mm f/1.4.
