Here’s a portrait I took of a good friend of mine in my living room. I used an extremely high shutter speed with strobe lighting and a 7″ snoot to get this effect. It’s a technique that wasn’t possible, or even imaginable back when I was his age, but it works really well and I hope to do it a lot more as I gain experience. It creates a very nice mood with very targeted light. I’ve done it a couple of times now and I learn something new every time about using it (in this case I learned I would have benefitted from a shorter snoot – say 5″ – because I had to significantly lighten his hand in post work).
