This is basically was my set up to my senior show shoot. He also carries many of my philosophies on photography and shooting people. I would love to do this in Spain, the language barrier makes it complicated. I have been asking people for portraits - I do know to ask if i can take a photo. Further explanation will be difficult though.
The idea we both share: not to get hung up on gear and complicated lights. Simplicity is key.
The lighting scheme he is using is exactly what Richard Avedon used on his street shoots.
I promise to post more photos from Spain soon. I am just busy hanging out and taking photos. I don't really feel up to spend a few hours in front of my laptop, editing photos right now.
