I went to the St. Louis Pride Fest in Tower Grove Park earlier today with the express purpose of taking quick portraits of attendees.
From the moment that I started photographing each subject, I tried to spend no more than 30 seconds taking pictures of them. This was partially as a courtesy to them but more as a drill for myself. I wanted to see if I could light quickly with my beauty dish to an acceptable level.
If you are one of the subjects in these photos and are interested in buying prints or digital copies, please contact me.
Brilliant and beautiful portraits, really. They are incredibly intimate and powerful… I’m flabbergasted that you only spent 30 seconds setting them up!
Thank you May. I was literally bouncing around from person to person very quickly spending VERY little time with most subjects. It was definitely a challenge that I could not have conquered without people letting their guard down quickly.
Aww you’re such a good photographer ….
what a great pic
Thanks Maxi Glamour! I appreciate the comment.
