    Wow, a great portrait, I'm sure your client was pleased! He looks as if he's looking up to see if he still has an audience, lol. This looks like a simple portrait, but I'm sure capturing the right moment with a little one, plus getting the right light was still complicated. What was used for light?

Hi Christine & Melissa,
Thanks for your interest. This shot was particularly fun because I have a great subject and because he has an interesting approach to the drum. I really enjoyed working with this client. Most of the shots were simple product shots, but the kid shots were a lot of fun! Most of them were used with the clothing line on the site. Its great when you can have such a good time with a client. I used one large light source, a light panel/umbrella combination on camera left and a second light with a smaller umbrella.
Thanks, John Siskin
