Cobras cricket team, Newlands

Posted: June 8, 2010 in Shoots in short

What a lekka bunch of people! This young team is the defending 20/20 cricket champions, very professional and a delight to work with. Posing for their individual portraits posed no problem – they came in, sat down and got on with the job – much like their batting and fielding. Very professional.

I used two Bowens Gemini 500s and one Bowens Bronze fitted with a 1 meter softbox as key light, one small softbox right behind to give texture to the cheek bones, and the other Gemini fired through a translucent white reflector on the right to soften the shadow made by the nose.

While waiting for some of the team members to finish practice, I snuck into Newlands for a panoramic picture of the stadium, stitched together from 5 photographs.
