One of my great hopes as a photographer is that every one of my clients leaves my studio seeing something in themselves that they could not see before. I love this portrait of Steph, because it exudes confidence, elegance and beauty. The great thing about photography is that it is as much a visual art as it is a tool for empowerment.
Some technical notes: this portrait was captured with one light firing into a v-flat from @vflatworld to camera left, and a second strobe firing into the backdrop (from @katebackdrops) through a gobo. A gobo is simply any object standing between a light source and the object being illuminated — in this case, a giant tumbleweed my son and I found at the park. Yes, we’re hoarders. No, my wife doesn’t appreciate it 😂
So sometimes I feel that the younger generation and even myself sometimes become too consumed with electronics. Face stuck in them.
But instead of just talking down and telling them about “back in my day” I decided to show them the experience.
We stay outside today In the majority of the daylight house and built a camp and camp fire !
So one day when they have kids whose half robots by that time. They too can say. “Back in my day when made camp fires 🔥!”
