Bette

Bette

photocrati galleryThe first image was my earliest photograph of Bette shortly after I had just met her. The second photograph was taken in Ireland the day before her youngest brothers wedding nearly 19 years ago and the last photograph was taken this past year with her adoring dog Molly in our Rockville, Maryland studio. Of the hundreds of exposures I’ve taken of Bette these are my favorites. 60% of the portraits I take are of women between the ages of 30 and 60 largely due to the fact that there has been a tremendous increase of women in executive positions. One might say that I’ve had my own in house executive to sharpen my skills with all these years. Incidentally, Bette is the CFO of Carl Cox Photography, Inc.

Leah

Leah

photocrati galleryPortraits of Leah in our Rockville, Maryland studio. Leah was charming and exceptionally easy to work with. We used a Nikon D800 with an 85mm 1.4 Nikon lens stopped down to f/10. We used a main light with a 40×60 soft box and two soft boxes with grids located at an elevation above Leah’s head behind her. We also used a spotlight with a grid on the background to produce a hot spot. My wife moved around with a large silver reflector to produce some very slight up lighting on her face, however, we normally leave the reflector on a stand. My wife usually works with the child to get a good comfort zone but in this case since it was our third portrait session with Leah, she was relaxed and needed no help.

Emily – Senior Portraits

Emily – Senior Portraits

We photographed Emily’s senior portraits in our studio in Rockville and on location at a local park one block from the studio. The outdoor work was photographed with a Nikon D800 using a 105mm defocus lens at f2.2 and a 70-200mm Nikon VR lens at f 2.8. The studio work was with the D800 and the 105mm defocus lens at f’9. The advantage of the defocus lens is that it allows you to throw the background or foreground out of focus no matter what the f stop. Emily has a lot of theatrical experience which made the assignment loads of fun and the fall colors plus the late afternoon sunlight added richness to the background in the outdoor images.photocrati gallery

The Ryan Family

The Ryan Family

photocrati galleryWe photograph the Ryan family each year on location in Silver Spring, MD. These are a four of the many images taken on November 1, 2014. For the most part, we used natural light with a gold reflector because the day was overcast. Indoors we used  a large window for light and a off camera fill flash bounced off the opposite wall which was white. The camera used was a Nikon D800 with an 85mm Nikon lens set a shallow depth of field (f2.2).
