I spent Father's Day photographing Deanna, Matt and Presley in a beautiful setting in Pasadena. I used speed lights with soft boxes and umbrellas for a completely mobile rig. The goal was to leverage the available light and create a mix of standard portraits and some more dramatic images. I also snuck in a few images of Jessica since she was with us. The lead image was shot in an outdoor stairwell with light shining through a window. Deanna and Matt stood directly in the beam of light which was the basis for the exposure. I shot an SB-800 on camera to drop the background out to black and converted it to B&W in post.
