Behind-the-Scenes: Medical Facility Portraits

Last week I went to a local medical facility with Rich Legg to photograph portraits of health professionals. The setup was fairly simple – we had two lights, each with softboxes, on either side at approximately a 45-degree angle. The images were for their profiles on the medical facility’s website, but instead of shooting traditional head-shots of we went with more of a “stocky, lifestyle” setup and one of the other staff members was kind enough to pose as the patient.

I’m very happy with the final products and look forward to returning in a few weeks with Rich to do some more photography. (BTW … thanks, Rich, for the behind-the-scenes photo!)

    No photos of Rich’s surgery? ;)

    Kidding, I’m sure that’d be the last thing we’d want to see.
