About a month ago I had the opportunity to photograph some faculty members in the Piano Department at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. My goal going in was to create a simple and replicable headshot style. I fired one Profoto B1 camera right feathering the light across the subjects’ faces through a 36-inch octa softbox. The texture in the background is a limestone wall about four feet behind the subjects.
Back in October, I got to spend a bit of an afternoon out at the Twin H Tree Farms. It was a rare excursion off campus to capture photos of the farm to go with a piece highlighting research by a professor at the Indiana University O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs revealing a 40 percent decrease in Indiana Christmas tree farms since 2002.
