Pablo Talamante is a Mexican-American opera singer and actor who came to me in need of some promotional portraits. We kept our session simple; one look, in studio, with a few wardrobe changes. In pre-production discussions Pablo made it clear he wanted a fairly dramatic look, even going so far as to show me example portraits he liked and wanted to emulate. I went with one light in a Rotalux Deep Octa, pulled in real close and feathered for a nice wrap and quick fall off. I used a green Gravity Backdrop which I then altered in post for more of a slate look in some of the images where I wanted a flatter color palette. The look paired perfectly with Pablo's personality and we made a nice collection of images that I think emote clearly, always my top goal in a portrait session.
Have a look... and let's make some work together.
