I don't always get to create portraits in such an easy location and have the time to perfect the image in camera (rather than fix it in post). The client, an attorney and a friend I play tennis with, was patient and easy to work with. That kind of foundation HAS to lead to something outstanding.
We set up a few different scenarios, but as soon as I pulled the trigger on this one, I KNEW it was the winner.
For you photographers, this was a four light set-up... main, two accents, and a background light.
