This test shot was a practice and study in lighting, composition and prop gathering. It is a shot editorial in nature, of mens accessories. Working closely with my wonderful photo stylist Kevin Hardiek, (see his web site HERE) this shot came together so fast and with such ease that I was scratching my head and asking myself if it really could be this easy. But in reality we discussed this photo extensively for three weeks prior, and we gathered all our props and we knew exactly what we were after. With proper planning and dialog, the execution of this photo went surprisingly smooth and flawless. See more at my portfolio HERE.
