    I wanted to post a few from this session because this guy is just so cool. He is a local musician and reminded me so much of the old school crooners. He would start singing during the session just so that he would look authentic! I loved that about him. This was literally a 10 min shoot because he came to me the day before he needed a photo for some promo stuff! Talk about last minute...

    Thanks for looking.

    Awww I actually really liked his shoes. A bit distracting but they really suit him!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I think the shoes are boss! It shows that he has a colorful personality, which is just how you described him.

    Can I ask how you did the lighting for this? Really nice! :)

    Yay! I'm glad that I'm not the only one that digs his shoes! As for the lighting, I figured someone would ask, so I took a pull back shot of the setup. It's on my computer at home, so I will post it tonight!

    As promised, here is the shot of my setup:

    Pretty simple really. All it is is my external flash on a light stand with a softbox and a set of pocketwizards! Very simple and easy but adds a lot of drama to a photo! This is the same setup I use for bridals as well! HTH!

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing! Where do you get a softbox that fits over a speedlite and mounts to a light stand like that?

    Westcott makes one that works just like an umbrella. I believe it is their Apollo series. There are only two, a small one and a larger one. It attaches just like an umbrella would!

    I love all of these. You did a great job. I know how hard it is to achieve the perfect light at sundown, and you rocked it.
