Having moved to Brooklyn I wanted to create a catalog of roommates, friends, and visitors to our home. Having just started this project this week I only have a few frames to share, but come Thanksgiving I hope to expand on this little project. I believe the photos to be honest portraits that will be a lot of fun to display around the house. (Technical Details Below)
The shoot was done very simply. The images were shot with a 5D Mark II and a 50mm 1.2. The images were exposed at ISO 100 1/200th and f/3.5. The lighting was very simple. One light in a gridded softbox positioned slighting above the subject, straight on. On the sides of each subject were two black cards, and the background was a chalk board from Williamsburg that now lives in our apartment. Here is a diagram of the setup.
