By nuetzel • Musician, On Location, Portrait • 26 Jan 2015

Markus is my oldest and one of my few best friends. I did many portrait paintings of him and took his photographs quite frequently over the years. He is a musician and you will find his band activities here.

We shot these pictures in the music school where he teaches. In the first two I tried a little different approach by using a strobe shooting down to the ground on a zebra reflector cloth for brightening the shadows. You can see the little light spot in the lower part of his pupil. All of them where done with a huge silver umbrella with diffusion cloth as main light. This light modifier has become one of my favorite when shooting on location. The coloured backgrounds were achieved with gelled lights.
