Last week I had a photography assignment to shoot a portrait in the woods. Knowing I was going into the dark forest on an overcast day, I took my Norman 400B battery powered strobe and an umbrella and light stand, and of course camera and tripod.
The scenario was to visit a new forest park and photograph the man who was instrumental in getting the park created. The forest area was originally scheduled to be clear cut, but a team led by my subject, organized and was able to procure the area and save it from the saws.
My client is an editorial style travel magazine that’s main goal is to promote tourism in the county so this story was perfect for that publications purpose.
