Continuing with my long exposure series while in Atlanta, I got to work with a great friend, actor and model Devan Dmarcus to create some expressive portraits. I love reconnecting with amazing artist like him and catching up with all the amazing things he has in stored for Black Men Smile. I can’t wait until he reveals all the projects he has up his sleeve, and I’m so honored to witness this journey.
Make sure to follow his journey at @forevalivin.
For the lighting set up, similar to my shoot with Travis Cure, I used a 4 light set up using the Paul C Buff‘s Einstein 640 watts Flash units. On the key light, I had the 22″ Silver Output Beauty Dish with a 30 Degree Grid, and the fill light was the AlienBees Ringflash. I had two gelled rim lights, one on each side of the subject. I adjusted the blue gelled rim light into a backlight in some of the images.
