This morning I continued my business relationship with VIP Eyecare in St. Petersburg Florida making a headshot for Dr. Henri. In the past I have photographed several events there as well as making commercial interior photos of their new location for print marketing materials and their website. For the headshot itself, they wanted to make sure the VIP logo was visible on Dr. Henri's jacket, along with her name, and then have the background show some of the product they carry, i.e. glasses. Since Dr. Henri was wearing glasses herself, I had to be careful that none of my speedlights were showing up as glare in her lenses by placing both lights high above her. For the perspective, I shot from one step up on a folding ladder.
Dr. Henri was a great model being able to recreate her smile as I adjusted the two speedlights I was using in the tight space between eyeglass shelves and getting the best composition possible to achieve all the details they wanted in the headshot. It is always fun to visit VIP Eyecare and say hello to everyone there and I very much appreciate them continuing to be my most loyal commercial photography client.
