My wife Elizabeth has been asking me to take some pictures of my son in his High School Sweater. She was not particularly happy with the school photographer so I set up my studio lights in our home and my buddy Mike came over for dinner and a photo shoot. See the pictures below.
These are basically unretouched – except for some minor zits. We tried to do the “Scholar and Athlete” bit.
I’m quite happy with the results. Now to place them on an 8 X 10 sheet so my wife can go make some prints.
In retrospect I probably should’ve hit him with a “hair light” so that his dark black hair doesn’t blend into the background. I’m still learning this photography studio stuff but it kinda looks cool, almost like a Corporate Executive shot.
I can only hope my son takes a picture like this in about 8 years when he’s the head of some great company.
Then he can take care of his ‘ol Dad. 🙂
