Here's another image of Bryce. The lighting is the same as before. I used one 22 inch PCB Beauty Dish with diffusion as my main overhead light and one 5ft Westcott Octabank to light the interior of the scene. I've had some questions about the placement of the Octabank, so here is a behind the scenes photo to show you the set-up.

I have noticed slight blur in images where I previously had none. The tripod will be a new standard for me now. Thanks for sharing this valuable information!

I am launching a new video blog called Behind the Lens, and here is the first one. My goal (hopefully) is to post a new one each week. I will cover topics ranging from the creative process, image capture, post processing techniques and product review.

The life of former NFL offensive lineman Tony Mandarich is profiled as the former first-round draft pick finds a second chance in photography after a disappointing NFL career.

Kicking off the new year with a image of Bryce Gressley. For this image I built a wedge wall in my Phoenix studio and used one 22 inch PCB Beauty Dish with diffusion as my main overhead light and used one 5ft Westcott Octabank to light the interior of the scene. 

One opening left for my Phoenix Workshop on January 17-18. http://www.joelgrimesworkshops.com/Joel_Grimes_Photography/Welcome.html

I totally agree with getting all the answers to the questions is SO important. People can become aggravated really quick, but it's needed.

Introduction
Commercial Advertising Photographer for over 30 years.  At heart I am a portrait shooter that loves making people look larger than life.  My goal is to create images that not only fulfill my vision as an artist, but also push the boundaries on what we would call traditionally acceptable.  I love the exploration process of breaking new ground.  I also have a passion to encourage others to explore and fulfill their artistic vision, as well.
