Family Time

Family

Another shot from before our winter break.


Lisa and Jan are family friends, they wanted some pictures for their Christmas cards, so we met them in Wynwood with 3 TTL flashes, a 30cm Octa, and knocked some pictures out in a little less than an hour.

Normally working with kids is hard, but Gaby and Alex were a trip, and we truly enjoyed ourselves on this shoot.

So... MMA Fighters, Lights, and this fat guy

Zack and Chacho

Before I get into the details, I would like to mention how happy I am with Patty’s development as a photographer. Normally, she helps me carry (heavy) stuff, passes me lenses or triggers, and then helps me carry (HEAVY) stuff back, this time, she was responsible for setting pretty much every light, trigger, cable, you name it; and she did so perfectly (next time she’s also coming up with the lighting diagrams).


Anyway…


For the past month, we’ve been working on our printed portfolio; it’s been interesting (to say the least). After culling all our images, we settle on 50 or so images, and I realized that we could use some extra images (not all images will make it to the portfolio, but we realized that there weren’t that many “looks” in our images). So we got together with Zack Matthews (Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Blue belt, and fight coach), and Hector Trinidad Jr. (Pro fighter, and golden gloves boxer), for a little shoot.

Hector was fighting that night, so Zack didn't want him to go too hard. Still, they had fun throwing each other around, light sparring, and grappling, and we got some nice frames of them doing so.


Now, I like to always have a plan, but we didn’t even got a confirmation on the location until a couple of days before the shoot (so there was no scouting), but I did have some ideas as to what I wanted to get in terms of frames, Zach knew that I wanted the images for the portfolio, so he went above and beyond (suggesting poses, ideas, etc.), so I am very thankful to have friends like him on a shoot like that on those shoot.


They made me cry

All in all, it was a fun day, and I came back with several pictures, a million thanks to Zack and Hector.
