Photo shoot for Architect - Net Zero Home

Hello. First time posting here for constructive criticism. These are "flambients" for the most part. The square-ish crops are stitched frames with 24mm tilt shift. My client's goal was to show Net Zero homes don't necessarily need to be cold, sterile, contemporary. They can be cozy and traditional which is the prevailing style in my area (ugh...

Hi, I just joined Fstoppers and found this group. There are a lot of really good photographers here! I've only uploaded 3 shots so far. I don't know how good they are...I'm a little intimidated!

Early 20th Century Dock Worker

Brandon and I played with an idea based on his bartending clothes. He is channeling his early 1900s dock worker. This was shot in open shade, outside. Fill was from the late afternoon absent light. The main was a flash in a large umbrella to camera left. He is a couple feet in font of the canvass back drop.

Just wanted to share. Do any...


This is natural light portrait, taken outdoors under a roof of some sort. I love windy conditions for my portraits. It adds a certain dynamic, an energy, that would be lacking in the first place.
