I only have a few friends I consider family and even fewer I would completely trust in a firestorm. Steve, who is the Chief Accounting Officerof a pharmaceutical company in Texas, is one of those kinda friends. We go way way back and I know he will bend over backwards to help someone out, especially a friend. It was a no brainer to say yes when he told me he needed a Dallas headshot photographer to create a portrait he can use for his LinkedIn profile.
The above image was shot with a Leica M9 and a 75/1.4 Summilux. Steve was standing under the shade of a tree and a white foam core reflector was placed about chest high. Since I try to keep my blog rated PG, I’m not going to repeat what I said to finally get a natural expression from him. Can’t even tell he was just wearing a pair of shorts for the shoot. It was 105 degrees Fahrenheit at White Rock Lake in Dallas, TX that day after all.
