Environmental Portrait for Wood Shop News Magazine


Environmental Portrait for Wood Shop News Magazine

This is an environmental portrait of Pittsburgh Furniture designer Bruce Berman.  I was asked to photograph Bruce for Wood Shop News, a national trade publication.  This portrait was taken with a Nikon D800 and a 24-70mm 2.8 lens using just on speedlight shot into an umbrella.  The shutter was adjusted to bring in the ambient light of the background.  I HDR to enhance the portrait, along with a little desaturation.

I’ve really been enjoying environmental portrait shoots lately. I think that’s a direction I’d like to go in with my R&D.  Sure, I still enjoy shooting food, and always will, but I’m going to start caring my camera more in hopes of doing more street and portrait photography.  We’ll see if I stick to it. :o)
