Creating Some Amazing Couples Portraits
I was able to get involved in creating some amazing couples portraits, and the results were amazing! Some of these couples portraits are part of my Back in Time photo series, and others are not. A big shout out to LEGACY FLIGHT MUSEUM for letting me use their museum for this project. Here is their website! http://rexburg.org/pages/lfm-legacy-flight-museum

Ok, so obviously this isn’t a “Back in Time” photo, but these guys were modeling as well and I had to take a picture. Setting up this shot was difficult. Behind the motorcycle we had a speedlight with a red gel frame that was in sync with a three-arm speedlight bracket that we used for the front of the models. We had to play around with the settings of each speedlight until we got the lighting that we wanted. I was on my belly for most of the time trying to get a spectacular angle of them, and I did. This is definitely a great couple’s portrait.
This sad couple is saying goodbye before the husband flies off to war. Since we were outside we used an Einstein Strobe light to get a shot of this couple. In Photoshop I decreased the saturation in hopes to get a more epic portrait from these guys. In the end, I think it turned out to be a great couples portrait!
Another period action shot that I wanted to get in Black and White. For this shot we had a continuous strobe light hitting our models. In Photoshop I increased the contrast of the photo and added a BW filter. It’s kinda sad to see another soldier go off to war, but that was what happened back then.
