Portraits for Matthias

Matthias contacted me for a corporate headshot session. He was looking for something different to a picture in front of a white background. We started in studio with natural light, which gave us some unidirectional soft light and allowed me to photograph literally focusing on his eyes. We played around with some flash options and…

My Current Favorite Camera and Lens Combo
