The other day I had a shoot with the VP of Government Relations for the American Motorcyclists Assoc. It was just a standard portrait type deal but the one cool thing about it was I got to take the photo on the roof of 101 Constitution Ave. (for you DC folks that the cylinder shaped building that has a great unobstructed view of the capitol – NW side). The photo is going to used full bleed in some type of annual magazine they the association produces.
It was a pretty simple setup, just one Alien Bee monolight in a soft box. I waited until mid afternoon when the sun was shining a little bit on the dome of the capitol and thats about it.
