Austin’s Studio Portrait Shoot

I photographed Austin’s studio portrait shoot in my uptown Minneapolis studio. Austin wanted some images to highlight his beautiful new black rose right arm tattoo’s so we set up a date and time to do a quick shoot at my home studio. I mainly used natural window light with a day light studio light as a fill to help bring out some detail in the dark and moody images.

I like the hint of detail of his tattoo’s in this image, the way the light fades gradually from left to right.

Loving the low angle on this image with the highlights on the wooden floor from the natural window light. It makes my studio space look a bit bigger than it is I think!

My studio has light grey walls that are perfect for a neutral backdrop for boudoir, actor, or commercial portraiture.

This is one of my favorite images. I’ve been working on balancing the natural window light with a studio fill light to be able to bring out some detail on the subjects silhouette. I think it’s successful the way the light is highlighting his torso!
