Around here, this "summer", you have to be ready to take advantage of the breaks in the weather when they happen. I had an actor's headshot session scheduled for last Monday, which, as it turned out, was the only good day this week. Not funny, really. It's July 9th as I type this and I think we hit 68F for a high today, and when I looked at the thermometer at 8:30 this morning, it was 60! At least it wasn't raining today, even though we haven't seen the sun to speak of since Monday.
Anyway... Monday... Justin Carrasco, an actor who has recently returned to the Greater Boston area from Florida was interested in having new headshots done outside. There are several locations in downtown Lowell, Massachusetts that I like to shoot in because of the colors, textures and the shade.
I'm sure if you are familiar with downtown Lowell, you will recognise at least some of these locations.
But we also did some nice work in the afternoon sun, balancing things nicely with small strobes. Justin didn't choose this next one, but I really like the look of the scene, and his expression.
