New Jersey Portrait Photography: Robert

One of my friends, who I’ve done photography work before is graduating soon with a concentration in Performing Arts and Theater.  We’ve done previous sessions for his career as a musician.  My goal today as the photographer was to capture a variety of moods and expressions, to allow Robert to select which photos best portray his personality.  I kept the lighting and photo equipment very minimal.

I think we wound up with several keepers that we both liked.  Perfect for his theater portfolio, LinkedIn, and Facebook profiles.

Equipment for today’s shoot:

Tamron SP 90mm VC F/2.8 macro lens

Canon EOS 6D full-frame DSLR

Yongnuo YN560ex Speedlite

Shoot-through umbrella alternated with a small softbox

Yongnuo YN-622C wireless triggers

Basic light stand
