I met Dr Norm and Barbara at an Albuquerque networking event some months ago, and since then have seen them many times such that we have become rather familiar with each other. Knowing the person some greatly helps making photos of them. They each one a free headshot session I had donated to various events. They wanted their headshots for LinkedIn and their own business website made together, and to reflect their teamwork and closeness in their business relationship, which of course stems from their personal relationship. In the shot above they have each other's backs!
The Home Studio strobist setup used this time was a 10 foot wide white muslin background with a studio light up high in a 55" gridded octo-softbox as the main light and a speed light in a 43" shoot through umbrella to the side. I knew I would be removing the white background and replacing it in Photoshop.
The color choice for the background reflects their main business branding color, a kind of turquoise blue. Hence they each wore turquoise shirts as well. Their business is Balancing Life and Work. They are great people and this was one of the more fun headshots shoots I have ever done.
