One of several senior portrait jobs I’m doing this fall. This young man was anxious to have his favorite sport, cross country, represented. The location, a dirt road used for training, provided great early morning lighting. I positioned a strobe and 43″ umbrella to the right to add some highlights to his face. An umbrella that size is a little small to light a full body scene, so I added an exposure gradient in post processing to even out the lighting a little, and added some vibrance to the colors to make it pop a little more.
