Location: Dumbo, Brooklyn
These portrait sessions started after one simple request from a friend and then it caught on like wildfire. I had the privilege to help these two talented artist take a couple of press shots for their up and coming track and promotions. We hit the scene of DUMBO Brooklyn to get some nice industrial/artist-mix shots. It was a little bit of a challenge as we shot this mid-day with the sun very harsh and it burning hot! The last thing you want is for the portraits to come out with their eyes closed and head full of sweat.
During the shoot I tried to strategize and position them in the shade making sure that the background won’t be over exposed. Throughout the shoot I would try to make sure that the subjects were always in the shade and the background had a great contrast and exposure that matches the subject. It takes some pre-planning and some route selections to see where to take the awesome shots. Here’s some of my favorite from the session. Cheers.
