Theo's Airsoft Photoshoot Photographer: Ben McMillen Washington PA
I had a chance to set up a creative photo shoot for a good friend of mine and his son Theo. Theo loves the game of airsoft! Most 12 year old boys HATE having their picture taken so we thought we would do something a little different. I think we accomplished our goal. Can't wait to see these blown up poster size on his wall! See how we shot this below...
How we shot it
I know it looks dark outside but it was actually shot a 12 noon. Brightest part of the day. But using a few studio strobes and a variable ND filter I was able to get the look we wanted. Even using cheap cans of hairspray for fake fog.
