I'm finally returning to my blog after a while - nearly 6 month. There are several reasons for this, but let's not focus on trivia around securing an income - let's focus on the exiting process of creating portraits.
Today I had the pleasure of photographing my good friend Finn Wichmann Lund, as he needed a straight forward business portrait for Linkedin and other "official" web pages / documents.
I call this "Quick Portrait" as the set-up is really fast. I use two Nikon SB-910 attached to a Lastolite Professional A2412 Triflash bracket mounted on a Manfrotto 5001B Tripod. As a diffusor I use a standard shoot through white umbrella. On each Nikon SB-910 speedlight I attach a PocketWizard Flex TT5. On my Nikon D800 with AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 I mount a PocketWizard MiniTT1 and an AC3. To reflect some light back I use a Silver California Sunbouncer. The camera is in Aperture priority mode, ISO 100, f/7.1. I´m shooting against a white wall. The RAW files is then post processed in Lightroom 5.
I normally shoot around 25-30 photos and select 5-10 for the client. The total time including set-up, photo shoot and post processing is app. 2 hours (excluding transportation). This is ideal for business people, who can't allot more than 30 minutes for a shoot. And all offices has a white wall.
Here are a couple more photos from todays shoot.
