Still straddling my time between enjoying the new baby and work, so here’s a few minutes of my time that incorporates both: one-month portraits. I’ve used this technique before on projects, and decided a simple solution was the best solution for a quick family documentation and short attention spans. All you need is even shade and a clean backdrop, in this case a white bed sheet I carry with my light stands. Converted to B&W with a little contrast tweak and there you go… coulda cleaned ’em up a bit more, but they’re just for family.

Here’s a nice little behind the scenes video that I ran across last week (via strobist.com) by photographer Clay Enos that walks you through the set up and idea behind street portraits.
