Recent Portraits

I was recently asked to photograph a group of folks who all work together.  There was about 100 in total and they wanted traditional head and shoulders shots.  My goal was to have consistency in the images and to not have them look like passport photos.  I did a lighting test before the first subject arrived to test for exposure, light intensity and light placements.  This is the first photo in the series, three others will follow in the next couple of days.

Canon 1Dx with Canon 85/f1.2 lens.  F6.3 at 1/80 sec.  Elinchrom Bx500 lights camera right and left at varying intensity and distance from subject; both fitted with umbrella modifiers.  Canon 580EX flash behind the subject.  All remote strobes triggered with Pocket Wizard wireless transmitters.
