Business Casual Headshot in Clearwater Florida with Brian

I went to Brian's office in Clearwater to make a creative business casual headshot - Nikon D300 Nikkor 80-200mm @ f/7.1 ISO 200 1/125th - Strobist: SB-800 in 43" brolly to frame right & SB-600 in 43" shoot-through-umbrella to frame left rearI went over to Clearwater, Florida on a recent afternoon to meet Brian and make a creative business casual headshot for him right in his office.  It was a nice long office with plenty of space to setup my portable studio equipment.  He wanted a white background for his headshot, so I put the white cover over my collapsible background so that I could easier cut him out and place him on a digital white background as seen above in the final image.  

During the headshot I learned that Brian was about to run his first Iron Man and had been running triathlons.  I told him how I have photographed the St. Anthony's Triathlon a few times and we also talked about fitness in general.  He was a natural in front of the camera so it was only a very brief hello, make the headshot, and good-bye, which is my goal to not take up much more than 15 minutes of the client's time.
