Very sweet portrait. It's amazing that he can hod his head up so well. Beautiful soft lighting! How'd you do that?

Michelle R. Kovach November 29, 2007

Thank you Teri.
Dad helped hold his head up a little under the backdrop.
The lighting, I used a shoot through umbrella on a strobe light set up higher than the subject. The shoot-through umbrellas act as a diffuser for the light source.
