Seeing that Mother Nature is in complete denial of the latest solstice, I thought I’d bring things back to those warm lingering summer nights in the city. One of my all-time favorite spots to relax and hit the pause button in my busy life is Fort Greene Park. The lighting on those September evenings is prime for portraits, and was the setting for some fun headshots testing out my new camera (Sony RX1R). We began our shoot in a lovely Clinton Hill backyard (wish it was mine, what an oasis!). Quick tip: look for places with even shade coverage so your subjects don’t have to squint. It’s also great to use the setting sun as a natural backlight.
Enjoy, and happy new year to you all! I’m so excited to show you what I have in store in 2016.
