New Zealand Psychological Board Portraits

 

Here are a couple of examples of my first commercial portrait work for the New Zealand Psychological Board. The brief was to shoot 12 individual portraits and two group shots for use on the web and in industry magazines. The timeframe was tight as board members were very busy, leaving an average of 3-5 minutes per individual portrait. Total time was one and a half hours from set-up to pack down. I wanted to try to create the light fall-off effect on the background so I used one shoot-through umbrella on the subject and one bare flash hidden behind the subject, directed at the white wall.
