Riders On The Storm

My studio was a stop on the ‘Trenton Rat Racers’ scavenger hunt around the city. A brave pack of cyclists headed out in the rain to ride around the city and check in at various points. I set up a simple three point lighting, one background and two 750’s at 2:1 with shoot through umbrellas. As each racer checked in at the studio, I took a quick portrait – only 4-5 shots per person and in post decided to split screen my two favorite expressions. I had planned ahead of time to shoot the┬áportrait series in black and white, but the colors shots are actually really interesting. So I might have to work on those too. It was great having random visitors stop by during the race!
