Portrait - Bettinger Law


Shot outside on the sly from building management. Slight tone and a faux shift/tilt lens effect.

Met a great client today. Jay from Bettinger Law. We did a little guerrilla portrait photography in front of his office building and set up some lights inside his office.


Love how the vertical lines in the back echo the lines on his tie...Open shade but bumped the contrast to make him look more senatorial.


I set the white balance to tungsten and warmed the strobes to give a real blue, cool, "techy" feel while making him jump out from the background...


A little Dutch angle to make the photo a touch more dynamic...

I just saw the first photo and thought to myself, "Woah, Russ has a tilt/shift lens!?"

Great work, as usual!
