A series of shots I did of my old man. He's been a musician his whole life so he has lots of cool instruments. Shot in his garage, I used my new Oliphant backdrops I just got (can't recommend these enough) along with my D700 and 24-70 and 70-200. Lights consisted of 2 Elinchrom Quadras and a reflector. 1 Quadra camera right set above with softlighter II 46" and another Quadra camera right bounced off ground and a reflector camera left.

Both quadras camera right with a reflector camera left. The big modifier is a 46" Photek Softlighter II with no deflector and other quadra has stock diffuser

Love the shots, was wondering where you bought the backdrop I checked out Oliphant's website but only has info on rental.

I called the owners, which are Sarah and Adelaide, and just asked if they do straight sales and they said sometimes. I told them I wanted the Annie Leibovitz style backdrop, gave the sizes and date I needed them and they said no problem.

But let me tell you they were not cheap at all. the 4x7 was $1150 and the 10x10 was $1700 plus $200 for shipping.

Thanks for the info. I thought when I saw your photos that they had a bit of that Annie Leibovitz kind of look too them and sure enough same backdrop and light modifier. I thought they would be expensive, I love how they seem to have an aged look to them. I may try to make one first I have a few artist friends.

Get that Nikon outta here!
I like the pics. The set you used is perfect for an older gentlemen. The textured gray background you used is strong and the lighting works really well for men. My favorite is #4. You can tell that he is someone who loves you (vs a stranger).

I really like the second one, the accordian fits in well, feels like an environmental portrait!

all I can say is SWEET! You have done a nice job of "capturing the soul". His love of the instruments, the music and performing show in each shot. The lighting and background allow the character in his face and hands show.

Keep up the grat work!
