Day 221 ~ Brandon
WHAT: Portraits, Project 365 (2009)   |   WHEN: August 15, 2009


Meet Brandon.  To all the single ladies out there, especially those in the Dallas area, Brandon is not a fireman, so you won't find him in any calendars of questionable intent.  Sorry.  In fact, he is a man with a heart for God, and what could be better/hotter than that, right?  Oh, and did I mention he's single and likes to Salsa dance?  I'm just sayin'...  Don't email me askin' for his number, email address, or facebook page; I'm not running a match-making service here... not yet anyway.  If this photography thing doesn't work out, though, I'll be reconsidering.

Brandon is actually in the men's group I meet with on Monday nights at church.  He's a stand up guy with a genuine concern for others, and it's been an honor getting to know him and sharing Monday nights with him.  Brandon's had people tell him he should give modeling a try.  I don't see it, but whatever.  [grin]  Clearly he's not a bad lookin' guy, right?  Long story short, we got together this past Wednesday evening to shoot a few images for a portfolio just to test the waters to see if he can bring in a little extra cash while he finishes seminary school.


















I've gotta give a shout out to my assistant Jeff for this shoot.  Jeff is also in the Monday men's group with Brandon and I, and he came along to hold reflectors & lights and generally just make fun of Brandon all night.  Here's a couple SOOC (straight-out-of-camera) images showing Jeff in action and the setup for the last image in this post.  We were actually walking back to the car and I saw this chair sitting up on this apartment building balcony and told them I wanted to do"just one more shot".  With the residents peeking out the blinds trying to figure out what we were doing and at one point Jeff laying on his back holding the reflector up towards Brandon's face, it was kind of a bizarre sight.



Here's the final image.  With all the crazy temperatures of light casting different colors, I decided to just neutralize all the lights colors in post to create a more moody image.


Oh, and chill out apartment lady... we put your chair back.

Oops... I lied.  One more.



Oh... and these 2.
