Ignatius Scardino Pino

For those of you who read my blog on "The FIXER", here are some shots my son let me setup with him of Ignatius...

The goal for these shots was dark/harsh light, hard contrast - moody...
And I dropped an led (some shots white and some shots red gel'd) in the camera to get the light coming from it...
I put a small strip box to his left (camera right) with a grid to really focus the light but along his full height...
And black v-flatz to his right (camera left) to eliminate any light bouncing back from that size... and a pop-up black backdrop behind him...
And I pushed the contrast and clarity to get the hard/sharp edges of texture and light I was looking for in post...
I'll drop a photo of the basic setup at the bottom of this post...

Remember, don't make eye contact! ;)

In my mind, this is the photo of Ignatius Scardino Onofrio - the guy you do NOT want to make eye contact with - I.S.O. - - - The other shots are James doing cozplay of Ignatius - Hence, Ignatius Scardino Pino...  ;)

The setup - pretty simple and pretty tight space...

Thanks! smile This was a really fun little project and fun to share the doing of it with my son - we are already talking about another similar shoot so pretty pumped that I get to do another with him!  They grow up so fast so any time I can spend more time with him is the highlight of my day! smile
