Portraits of Hunter.

My brother Hunter is such a willing photo subject - I love to try out new lighting ideas with his help! I was thinking one day that our downstairs bathroom has bright red walls and also a translucent shower curtain.... which led me to the idea of putting a flash inside the shower and bouncing it out for some nice soft portrait lighting with the striking red background... Ta-Da!

I was also messing around with some cardboard and aluminum foil to make myself a 'ringflash', a device to distribute the light from my external flash around my lens for an interesting 'wrap-around' look that's kinda popular nowadays.


...which ended up with me photoshopping him here: My Bro on GQ   ...maybe when he's famous and playing for the Yankees :)
