Executive People Photography

Detroit Michigan People Photography by Mary DuPrie

Today’s image is from Kelly’s comp card shoot from yesterday.  I think this shot turned out great and will really sell the fact that she could represent a newscaster, executive or professional working women.  Kelly’s hair is a great length for these roles.

I’ve often mentioned I don’t use my windows nearly enough.  I use them all the time for headshots but hardly ever for 3/4 or full length shots.   I’m thrilled with the results and how easy the set up will be, just open up the curtains and put up a background.  I am using my tri flector in the vertical position to the right.  For my two test (deep discounted shoot package) I think it will be my go to set up.  (Yeah, I finally have a go to set up!)

The background is one of my custom painted canvas backgrounds which I think looks quite dramatic.  Last July a student made one similar after seeing mine (the one on the left), watch the fun video here.

I really like this background! How far away is it from the model and what lens do you normally shoot this with? 85mm?
