A Straightfoward Portrait – Studio on Location

Tuesday, July 17, 2007 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructThe need was to produce to PR-style images of two executives for an association. Rather than have them waste a day coming to us, instead, we always prefer to go to the client, setting up in their space, making it easier for the client’s subjects.Assignment Construct


We traveled with our Rololights kit, a continious light source, with a lighttools light modifier to control the light.Assignment Construct


For this assignment, we spent more time waiting for our subjects than we did making the images, but that’s ok, since we’re there at the client’s convenience. Each of them came in, when they could, and spent about 5 minutes infront of the lens, before heading off to other meetings.Assignment Construct


The subjects approved/selected their images before they left the room, and so all we had to do was retouch the images chosen, and deliver them via e-mail.

Final Analysis:

Assignment ConstructMy assistant stood in for the tests, followed by two portraits of the executives. This is a fairly straightforward shoot and style to work in, and, if we don’t do it too often, I enjoy getting out to make these images from time to time.
