Basket Case

I suppose I have a thing for baskets, particularly when they involve babies.

Often, it’s a family thing. Like 3 brothers.

The latest is Jack. Although I have an idea of what the image will be when photographing, it’s in post that it comes alive and leads me down a certain path. For Jack, the image shouted “old masters” – oil painting – and thus its incarnation:

I went wide-aperture, which explains the softness of the arms. It felt good at the time… 

For all the images, my Elinchrom Quadra was the light source. Jack had the smallest modifier, my 16″ Porta Lite, placed close which is why the background fell dark. I love it for this image.

For Wyatt, he was actually in a planter (improvise!), and we went for the large noggin’. This was a much larger source, the Quadra mounted in the Deep Octa, so much more background spill. Love the tooth …

Finally, Leo was the first. Same mod, different background. He was the first, you know …

These make really special wall treatments. I understand Jack is infatuated with his brother’s pics. We did 30″ canvas prints for this. Awesome as a grouping. You definitely need this on your wall!

Of course, not all baskets contain naked babies …
