Mother and child

85mm Gray 31

There is nothing more precious that the love between a mother and her child. This image clearly reflects that love and bond.  This past weekend I spent two days shooting Vinny for his first birthday and first valentine day.  Now that his is more mobile, it took a little more work to keep him on the set.  The problem is that after 378 frames, it becomes more and more difficult to select one image over another.

The setup for this image was:

  • 60” Octagon soft box as the key light
  • 2’ x 4’ soft box as a fill light
  • Back light with a 40-degree impact grid
  • All strobes are Alien Bees B800 strobes

Camera:  Nikon 750 with Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G lens

Metered with Sekonic L-478

Hand held in manual mode: f/11 at 250/sec.
