Today's Portrait...........

Today's portrait is an image of Niagara Symphony Principle Music Director Bradley Thachuk. This was taken a stone's throw from my studio where we have some woods nearby. I started the session in my studio but had this photo in my head for days in advance. I was grateful for the gloomy overcast day that lent itself to the mood I was going for.  Available light with an off camera flash with an orange gel and a soft box modifier. Colour balance was set for the orange gel. Some post rendering was added. Shot on a Canon 5dMKII with a 70-200mm2.8 zoom.
