Albuquerque Portrait Photographer Civic Plaza with Christina

Civiic Plaza in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico was the setting for this portrait.

Albuquerque Civic Plaza Portrait Shoot

Christina was a former DSLR photo student of mine here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She contacted me about having portraits made out on location because she was actually now leaving ABQ and wanted to have some photos for her memories. I had long been wanting to use Albuquerque Civic Plaza as a location so I was glad she agreed to my suggestion to shoot there. Even though it was a middle of the afternoon shoot, I used my new 42” Cheetahstand SoupBowl softbox to be able to shoot in the harsh lighting conditions in numerous spots around Civic Plaza. The water fountains, unfortunately, were not on, but everywhere else was free of passersby and there was no lack of spots to shoot at.

Check out the BTS shot below to see the simple one light setup all these photos were made with.

Thanks Christina for being so great in front of the lens!
