Mike the Mailman
Mike is the man. Well, he is the mailman. For years now, I have seen Mike hard at work and I have always greeted him with a just a wave. Mike the mailman is hard to miss. His captivating look is unique with his hair, boots & shorts. It wasn’t until recently that I finally took the time to talk to him and ask him if I could take his portrait. Mike agreed and come to find out he is a photographer himself. He scuba dives and does under water photography. We coordinated a time and place to meet and thanks to the weather gods, we had a short window before a storm just crashed down on us. I think one of these will make my portfolio so let me know which image you prefer.
Some of you have asked about lighting in the comments. Sorry I forgot to include earlier. I used 1 Paul Buff Einstein in a 22″ White Beauty Dish with a diffusion sock. Image 1 and 3, the light was on the left and image 2 it was on the right.
