Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot with a Fat Bike

by dav.d

I couldn’t wait to share this photo. For years I have wanted to photograph someone with their mountain bike or some kind of sporting adventure. Well, that finally happened yesterday. I was photographing Cory for headshots, portraits, and even some fitness photos. He is the proud owner of a fat bike. Apparently these things are awesome. They look a bit funny but I guess they are very comfortable to ride.

This is also a chance to show off my portable lighting kit. 90% of the time I am photographing someone this is the lighting setup I am using. I can so so much with this one light. If need be I do have more lights and more equipment… but I get most everything I want done with just one light.

This blog post might appeal more to photographers but I think it is helpful to show what makes my photography look the way it does. This is the secret sauce in most of my photography.

And now, I think I am done blogging for the day. Now I get to prepare for 2 weddings this weekend! I am second shooting for two different photographers and it is going to be busy busy this Labor Day Weekend. I’ll be recovering Monday for sure. Woo hoo!
