I receive a lot of request for paster portrait sessions due to my inheritance of Church Street Studios. Usually, I would include a smoke machine and the optical snoot or barn doors to create a beam of light behind my subjects. For this round, I decided to keep the background simple and just to focus on my subject. Perhaps the next time around I will add the other components.
These images are not retouched at all. I could lightly retouch them, but to be honest why not leave them raw for a change. I am perfectly happy leaving them as they are for the present moment.
