South Carolina portrait photographer, Lauren Gregory, shares her story behind the shot from this classic and timeless family portrait.
For this family I wanted to create a unique portrait, with soft directional light, and where each person is holding their own space. I sketched out their poses before the shoot (I always have a couple of options prepared when children are involved). I used a tripod to make creating a composite a breeze if necessary.
A base layer of light was created with an AlienBees™ B800 Flash Unit and
60” Foldable Octabox just above camera. My key light is an AlienBees™ B800 Flash Unit and a 47” Foldable Octabox camera right and feathered away from my subjects for a softer look.
