I got together with Actor, Dancer, and Choreographer, Sonam Sharma, to shoot a series of creative portraits with an eye toward fashion and lifestyle photographs/photography. We had a blast shooting in the freezing January air on the water in the shadow the Outerbridge crossing spanning from Perth Amboy, New Jersey to Staten Island New York.
I used my favorite lighting setup, an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra with a 39-inch Deep Throat Octagonal Softbox, in strong winds gusting off the water all evening long. The softbox gave us beautiful, soft light with amazing catch lights!
Check out a few of the photos we shot that evening.

Eden and I got together and shot some dynamic portraits of her on an evening in mid-December of last year. Temperatures hovered in the 30s, but felt even colder with a brisk wind cutting through us every couple of moments and a mixture of rain and snow slowly turning the ground around us into a cold wet slushy mixture. The weather was miserable, but it was all in the name of great pictures! We endured the rough weather (including her mother acting as hair stylist, makeup artist, and pulling wardrobe and my assistant) and managed to get a number of beautiful photographs!
In one of the more memorable shoots of my 2011, Eden let her skill shine loud and clear as she proved to be one of the most talented and easy-to-work-with subjects I had photographed all year! At just 16 years old she handled the shoot like a seasoned pro and took direction amazingly well-in the rare event that she even needed direction!
This young model is sure to leave her mark in the industry as she combines her remarkable looks, an undeniable talent, a great personality, as well as a perpetual hustle to book work as she juggles school, music, sports, and her budding young modeling career. Look for this name (and face) to quickly rise to the top in the pool of talent in Philadelphia and across the nation!
We shot these images with an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra and a 30×24 Elinchrom Rotalux Softbox. My assistant held a bare bulb Canon 580 EXII speedlite on a paint pole which acted as our edge light to give a little shape to the subject. We triggered the shots with the RadioPopper JrX triggers. Nearly every shot was shot at F4 and 1/100th of a sec.
Check out a couple of the shots we got below.
