Ashley Montemayor – Head Shots – McAllen, Texas

Ashley came to our studio for professional headshots. She is a Mortgage Loan Originator at Cabrales Mortgage. So if you need a home loan feel free to click on her name to link out to her Facebook page.

Today I wanted to show off these 6 images from her session at my studio in McAllen because of two reasons. Reason number one: I wanted show that shooting in different orientations. We always shoot horizontal headshots and vertical just in case the client needs both for their marketing purposes. Reason number two: use at most two backdrop colors. This helps gives your clients headshots different looks, which can also be helpful for their marketing material for where they will be posting their images. 10.15.19_High Res_Ashley Head Shots_BBP-15 copy_pp_WEB10.15.19_High Res_Ashley Head Shots_BBP-15-2 copy_WEB10.15.19_High Res_Ashley Head Shots_BBP-15-4 copy_pp_WEB (2020-01-04T09_13_27.192)10.15.19_High Res_Ashley Head Shots_BBP-15-6 copy_pp_WEB10.15.19_High Res_Ashley Head Shots_BBP-15-7 copy_pp_WEB10.15.19_High Res_Ashley Head Shots_BBP-15-9 copy2_pp_WEB

Fujifilm XT-3 – Beauty Dish Studio Test with Sara Yanez – Ben Briones Studios

Sara and I rented the Fujifilm XT-3 to test it out because we are thinking of buying ourselves a pair. Our first test was with a one light setup with a beauty dish on a pink seamless. Everything was shot in JPEG and we did very minimal editing or none at all one some of the shots.

I had to adjust the camera setting a bit before we starting getting good results. I had to remove the eyepiece live view because I wasn’t able to see the shot because high aperture kept the view dark. I was also having trouble with the focus. I couldn’t tell if the shots were in focus so I setup the eye autofocus to help me. The the last thing I adjusted was the touch screen so I can zoom into the shot and check the sharpness. Those were the only 3 things that I had issues at first before figuring out how to fix them. Great camera for studio photography. 2019-02-11_00012019-02-11_00022019-02-11_00032019-02-11_00042019-02-11_00052019-02-11_00062019-02-11_00072019-02-11_0008IMG_7926

Flashpoint eVOLV 200 – Studio Head Shot Test – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

A few months ago I tested the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 outdoor with these two cool kids and I loved how the photos came out. I have been recently looking for a smaller powerful light for my photography and the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 / Godox AD200 is a competitor for my money. Yes, I am probably like a billion years late with these lights but who cares.

Anyways, I was able to gather these guys again for another photo shoot but this time in my studio for head shots. I used a very small octabox, I believe it was a 18inch, and a YONGNUO YN560 for background light. To kill some shadows we used a small reflector under their face. Here are some of my favorite shots from the photo session testing out the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 in my studio. I am really, really thinking of getting this light but we will see. 2018-09-15_00012018-09-15_00032018-09-15_00022018-09-15_00042018-09-15_00072018-09-15_00052018-09-15_0006
