I had the opportunity to shoot head shots for these fun ladies in their leadership getaway. These ladies were from all over the states. They sale lash products in a multi level marketing business. Many of them are very successful in their craft. I had fun taking pictures of them.
CBH wanted to have photos of their employees in Black and white, and they wanted to use natural lighting from a window creating contrast with the shadows and the light. The entire idea is for the photos to not be perfectly exposed by create a contrasting look that gives a little depth and drama. It can be a challenging task because you don’t want to over expose, and you don’t want to high of ISO so there isn’t to much grain. The left side of the face should be a little darker and under exposed. I used my Sony A7rii with Sony G master 85mm lens shot wide open at F1.4 to give it nice depth of field. I also set up a black back drop. I used a little bit of light on the left side of the face with a portable light. I also used a Vello trigger and Manfrotto tripod to make sure I got good focus and no blur because of the slower shutter. Fun assignment! Thanks CBH! Here is a link to their website on their team page to see the photos of the their team. Every 4-6 months I take new shots of the new employees coming. https://cbhhomes.com/meet-the-team
