Athlete Portrait: Dramatic Headshot

Brazoswood High School Portrait taken at Hopper Field in Freeport, Tx.
Today, I re-watched a recorded video of Peter Hurley giving a presentation at the google + conference.  He makes some excellent points that all photographers think about.  He's also an entertaining speaker.

You can watch the video here on youtube.

One of his focal points is the importance of getting emotion out of your subjects. 

The above head shot was taken under the bleachers at Hopper Field in Freeport, Tx.  We used a D300s with 1 - SB-900 in a softbox.  All the post processing was done in Lightroom 4... no Photoshop on this shot.

Football Portrait: Angleton Wildcat - Sam Cisneros by: Brenda Read

Football Portrait: Angleton Wildcat - Sam Cisneros by: Brenda Read, a photo by brendaread on Flickr
Sam is a highly accomplished high school athlete. Sam played for the Angleton Wildcats and this photo was taken during his senior session on his home field. This headshot was taken on the field using one SB-900 in a softbox and a D300s just after dark. Sam was not only a great subject but also one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. I'm sure his future will be bright and we wish him the best.
