Cody Dresser

Yet another photo from the recent session Cody and I did, however, this is a film image, photographed with my RB67 Pro-S and 90 mm f/3.8 mounted on a Bogen 055X ProB tripod, using a 488 RC0 ballhead. We had been doing the portraits seen earlier in my stream, and I saw Cody moving a chair to another part of the room and decided to give up on saving the seamless we had brought in and use the chair as a prop. Cody did a variety of poses while on the chair, however the instant I saw this one, there was a tension present, a tension that pulled me in and made this one of my favorite portraits not only from that session, but also of all time (by me, at least). As far as lighitng, it was really a set up I hadn't used before, I was feathering a 22" BD on to Cody from camera left, having the dish aimed to go pretty much past him, and a 32" white reflector A-Clamped onto a lighstand to camera right, just out of frame next to Cody.
