Portrait session with Helanah, Syracuse, New York. April, 2016.


Helanah and I recently collaborated on a portrait session in an ad hoc – errr, cough cough – garage studio during a visit to Syracuse, New York.  Despite the space being cramped (and the ceiling being comically low), Helanah was a trooper and her patience and poise are reflections of her professionalism.


We ran through a few different lighting setups and removed the seamless background for additional portraits, though I think that the images in front of the solid backdrop are the better ones – they are photographs of her, as opposed to images with a busy, strange, out of focus “thing” happening in the background.

You can’t win ’em all.  🙂

All in all, I am pleased with the results and look forward to working with Helanah again in the future.  Did we have a good time catching up and joking about all things Syracuse?  You be the judge…


Thank you, Helanah, for trusting me with your portrait – I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
