I’m just sitting in the studio just trying to get to you

You might remember about six months ago I posted some portraits of Rob. I took a few frames on film that day too. Only took me that whole six months to go from shooting to processing to finally sharing but here you go!

Q

richardceccanti asked:

Hi Derek, could you tell me which model point and shoot camera you used for the camelback catalogue? or if you have any advice for a good and sturdy p&s... thanks!

A

I use the Sony RX100. I find it to be pretty great, especially for how tiny it is. 

Quick and dirty catalog shoot with nothing but two sub $100 speedlights, a point and shoot, and a couple white foam boards.

I’m not trying to say this is a super pro photo, but wanted to remind myself that the gear doesn’t matter, it’s knowing how to use what you’ve got.

Glad I got a chance to hang with my man BK before he took off for NYC. Clearing out an apartment, recording a new record, and moving across the country in three days is no easy task so I was happy he could squeeze in time to chill and sit for a portrait. Good luck out there! 

Did a headshot session with Vanessa this weekend. Livingroom studio was a success!

Here’s a shot from last Friday’s photoshoot. Hanging while shooting out of the sun roof is fun. 

Pretty cool to see my photo in the list of popular photos on the Fstoppers homepage this morning!
