Head Shot Fun

I finished up last month getting to photograph a couple of wonderful actors, Heidi and Elke. Both very fun to work with and willing to let me experiment with some lighting solutions. For Heidi, I started out with a ring light flash, then moved to a beauty dish setup, and finished up with a combination of medium softbox and beauty dish. Those came out looking like this...

The next day brought a session with Elke that you can see below. For these I used a 24x36" softbox for the portrait and first t-shirt image. Then moved to the Alien Bees 80" silver PLM for the processed image. And back to a softbox for the photo of Elke's new tattoo.
