Real Estate Jason - Atlanta, Ga. Business Head Shot Photography

Jason is an aspiring commercial property manager. As part of the trade, he was in need of an updated, professional headshot. So, we got one of those, plus a few extra bonus shots. I love comfortable, fun photo shoots, and Jason's session was just that.

As a natural light photographer, this shoot was interesting because it was pretty much in the dark. The sun was all but set and we were shooting indoors. I felt pretty confident in the low light without any additional flash and didn't even realize that it probably seemed strange to the person being photographed until Jason said "I've never been photographed in the dark before." So let me throw it out there, you can photograph great pictures, even in the dark!

How did we do it? For this shoot, to keep the lighting all natural, a shallow depth of field, and I like a little vignetting, I blew the aperture wide open (f1.2), set the ISO to 2000 and shutter speed to 1/80. Aperture is basically the hole through which the light passes into the camera. So, the lower the f-stop number, the wider the aperture, and the more light will get into the camera! Having a wide aperture is awesome in low light situations because you can take a pretty picture without ever using flash or lamps. I hope you enjoy! And try photographing in the low light situations sometime!
