- About This Post
I got a call from Jeff (Robert Baratheon) a few days ago – he and his kids were visiting Capitola for a few days and wanted to do a little something untraditional for their family portraits. Game of Thrones was the winning theme, so they scrambled for costumes, and ad-libbed where they needed, and met up with me this evening at Capitola Beach. I set up our stage in front of some boulders, right next to the stairs that come down the cliff to the beach. I hid a couple Nikon SB-800 speedlights in the boulders to add a little separation/visual interest, and used my Profoto B1 w/ 30″ softbox as my main light, fairly high up over their heads for some dramatic lighting. Some extra polish in Lightroom brought the drama and grittiness up to where I envisioned. I thought they came out really well – afterwards we did a more “traditional” shoot but I think the GOT shots will be what hangs on their wall at home! What do you think?
