Dave, a local attorney and friend came to me asking about portraits for an update to his website and profile pages. In “keeping it real” we decided to use the Bexar County Courthouse as the backdrop for the photo session. Plus I am thrilled anytime I get to shoot in downtown San Antonio. We went for a number of different looks throughout the shoot and overall we were both really excited with the results.
In typical fashion I used a couple of speedlights to add a little drama and dimension to the scene. Since the speedlights are small, quick, and easy to setup, they are great for location photo sessions. The drawback is they lack the high power light output of larger strobes but since we were not shooting under midday sun I had plenty of power to get the lighting and look we were going for.
