Back in October we set up our home studio to welcome in the Trent family. They were some of our first clients a little over a year ago when we started shooting, not for money, but for gift cards to restaurants! Needless to say, this awesome family of four has been an incredible blessing to get to know over the past year.
This year, father and husband, Asim, was hoping to do something a little different. He came across a portrait we made and posted on our social media, which resembled the Platon aesthetic. Just being told that our portrait made him think of the famed British photographer, Platon, was encouraging enough--so, to be summoned to shoot individual, family portraits in that style was a real treat.
One of the advantages of working in-studio is tethering our cameras to the computer. We tether our Sony A7RII camera bodies to our iMac via a Tether Tools cable and use Capture One Pro 10 for Sony in order to bring the images in and apply some preset processes to each image--this is so that the models can get a feel for what the final images will look like. We ended up delivering 9 images in total--in both color and black & white for each. These four are our personal favorites! What do you think? The opportunities for wall art made from these images are very exciting--framed individually, side-by-side in one long panoramic image, or even in a 2x2 layout within one square frame would be pretty cool. We are excited to see how they decide to frame and display their portraits.
