Portrait of Greg

Really... what can I say?

It doesn't get much better than having the opportunity to photograph Greg.

 

Greg is a truly gifted artist and musician, not to mention rock climber and motorcycle lover.

A genuinely intense guy with the most character I'll probably ever see in front of my camera.

 

Taken during the Don Giannatti Workshop held at my studio last weekend.

 

Lighting Info:

All lights are AlienBee B800's

 

There was a 5' Photoflex octabank on Greg's right, placed at a 90º angle.

Greg was standing at the very far back edge of the light, which feathered the soft light towards the opposite side of his face.

I don't exactly remember, but there may have been a white V-flat placed on Greg's left, for fill. I know we used the V-flat for several of the shots, but I'm not sure which ones. I think we did use it here, because Don wanted to bring some light on the leather jacket. At some point, Don added a strip box in front of Greg, to his left, for additional fill. Again... I apologize, but I am not 100% sure if it was used for this shot. For the background, there was a strobe with a bare reflector placed about a foot from the thunder gray seamless, right behind Greg.

 

Yay! Chosen as one of the top picks on Photo Extract for March 1st.
