Headshot In A Hallway

Today was an interesting experience. When I showed up to do 3 corporate headshots for a client downtown, I was faced with a problem that many photographers have probably faced before; no ideal place to set up. The foyer was bustling with pedestrians, the offices were too small, and the conference room was filled with a table that was apparently welded to the floor. So, the hallway leading to the client’s office was the only option. Luckily, I found a turn in the hall that had a corner chopped off that allowed me another foot of room. So there we are, shooting diagonally down a hallway, with the lights about 1 foot on each side of the clients face, while a few onlookers “excuse me’d” through the set-up and voila! Problem solved. Because that’s what we photographers do…solve problems.
