I posted a couple of weeks ago about Lawrence’s headshots in downtown Annapolis, and today I’m posting about the other half of that session – Lawrence’s other half, Jason! I met up with Lawrence & Jason at State Circle in DTA on cloudy Easter Sunday, but our time was anything but gloomy. We had a lovely time walking around the cobblestone streets & catching up, capturing fantastic headshots for these two.
Easter Sunday this year happened to be anything but Easter-y – it was overcast, a little chilly, & started drizzling toward the end of our session. I know clients aren’t always excited when they peek out their windows to see clouds in the sky on their photo shoot day, but guess what: overcast skies are actually perfect for picture taking! Yeah – I’m serious! Of course us photographers’ favorite times of day are the two magic hours – right around sunrise & just before sunset, when the light is raking across the surface of the earth, shining beautiful golden light on our subjects. But overcast days are a close second because clouds create what’s called diffused light. The clouds kind of break up the light from the sun & disperse it evenly, taking away any chance of dark shadows & bright highlights on or near our subjects. So not to fear: if you have a photo shoot scheduled & the sky is cloudy, your photographer is super excited because you are going to get some beautiful photos!
Such was the case on Easter Sunday for Jason’s headshots in downtown Annapolis. The cloudy skies made for the perfect light situation & we were able to capture some great headshots for Jason using the white columns, burnt orange seeder shake shingles (say that five times fast!), and historic brick of downtown Annapolis as backdrops.
Jason looked so prefesh & dapper in his suit. He was totally game to get some strong and fun, yet professional headshots. I think our trip around State Circle & the St. John’s campus accomplished just what he was looking for with his headshots in downtown Annapolis!
