Portrait of a young woman - Caroline Fruergaard Lund

I was commissioned by a young woman - Caroline Fruergaard Lund - to take a series of color and black & white photos to be used in her CV, LinkedIN profile and possible other social media sites.

The schedule was tight, as she passed my studio "on route" to another event. So I used my mobile studio (2 x SB-910 mounted together with a Elinchrom Deep Silver umbrella and a Lastolite EasyBox softbox. I also got to test my new Lastolite back drop in smoke/concrete.

The camera was a Nikon D810 with AF-S Nikkor  24-70 f/2.8E ED VR. To control the flash output I used a PocketWizard Flex TT5 together with each Speedlight, and a PocketWizard Mini TT1 and PocketWizard AC3 Zone mounted on the camera. This set-up never fails me!

Metering mode was "Spot", Exposure mode "Manual" and exposure 1/125 sec at f/5.6 with ISO 64 and 0 EV.

Portrait of Hans Peter Hartzberg - a business man

A plain portrait photo to be used on the 16:9 format front page of the home page for his company. The photo can also be cropped to be used for his LinkedIN profile, business card, presentations etc.

I used two light sources. The main light was an Elinchrom Deep Silver 125cm umbrellar with a Nikon SB-910 Speedlight. The second light which was used to even our the shadows was a Nikon SB-900 Speedlight shooting through a Lastolite Professional EzyBox Softbox.

Camera: Nikon D810

Exposure: 1/60 sec at f/6.3, 0 EV, ISO 64

Portrait of Cassandra Bortolozzo - a young girl

Cassandra is really easy to photograph. Easy to instruct and alway acting normal in front of the lens. She has a very symmetrical facial form with nice big eyes. I've chosen an overall balancing color tone towards the green / brown to emphasize her brown hair and green shirt.

The light source was a Nikon SB910 shooting into a big Elinchrom Deep Silver 125 umbrella.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens: Sigma AF 50mm f/1.4 ART
Exposure: 1/60 sec at f/2.0, 0 EV, ISO 64
