St. Louis Magazine reached out to shoot the cover for their September issue featuring the “Best Bars” of St. Louis. They had me at cocktails.
I also shot a behind the scenes video featuring everyone involved, my photo technique and my retouching process. I employed a technique quote commonly used in smaller spaces where I shoot the models lit as I envisioned them and then clear the set to shoot exposed for the ambient light. In post, I’ll mask the desired areas from each shot creating an image lit exactly as I intended even though the location didn’t technically allow the look to happen in one shot. Cheers!
