My most recent stock photo shoot was a Dragnet meets GeekSquad meets Men in Black type of theme. I wanted to have a plainclothes police officer with a very clean look. My friend (and fellow photographer) Glen stepped in to model as the detective and pulled it off nicely. With the help of Erik playing the part of the ‘perp’, we put together a nice set of images to add to my stock portfolio.

The lighting setup for this shoot was fairly simple (as most of mine usually are). I used both of my Canon Speedlites (430 and a 580 II) off camera to light the scene. For the location we used a favorite of mine, the alleyway next to the studio.

As always, we had a lot of fun and got a few strange looks from people passing by as we did the shoot.
