Photo of the Week #239

February 24, 2015

Last Wednesday I spent the day taking portraits of 28 New York City Football Club players, including this classy one of Chris Wingert. I wonder if he uses those James Bond eyebrows to distract opponents on the soccer field (football pitch to you international folk).

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200mm f2.8 II lens @ 105mm, f5.6, 1/160th, ISO 100. Lit with three Einstein 640 strobes, one in 64″ PLM umbrella above on boom, two with 30 degree spot grids behind subject right and left, vignette added in Photoshop.

Madison Square Garden hosted the NBA All-Star Game this past Sunday, and as usual the globally televised event was as much about entertainment as basketball. The evening included performances by Christina Aguilera, Nas, the Rockettes, and this halftime show featuring pop starlet Ariana Grande.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200mm f2.8 II lens @ 200mm, f3.5, 1/640th, ISO 1600.

Here’s a beauty shot of the Motorola Moto G I took at the NYC launch party for Cablevision’s new Freewheel all-WiFi cellphone service last Wednesday. Lower phone bill, anyone?

The New York Rangers Go Skate! youth hockey event last Wednesday brought out the kid in 39-year-old Martin St. Louis, the Rangers’ 5’8″ right winger. St. Louis, a 15-year veteran of the NHL who was traded to the Rangers late last season, was instrumental in the team’s run to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 II lens @ 124mm, 1/1000th, ISO 6400.

I stepped a little out of my comfort zone last week and took some product shots for Mendocino, California-based Mendocino Soups, a company that prides itself on preparing natural soups brimming with fresh and complex flavors, free of artificial preservatives. Tasked with capturing photos of various soups alongside their key ingredients, I scoured my local produce markets for items like coconut and ginger “with character.”

It definitely took longer than I expected to arrange all the ingredients just so, but I’m pleased with the results, especially this one of Thai Fish Stew. The best part? Delicious soup all week!

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200mm f2.8 II lens @ 102mm, f8, 1/160th, ISO 100, lit with Canon 550EX flash in Paul C. Buff 64″ Soft Silver PLM with diffusion fabric, pair of 550EX flashes lighting white seamless, Home Depot Thrifty White Hardboard Panel Board underneath products.
