To illustrate the story I was sent down to the station to get a nice portrait of Fish.
I decided that I wanted to get a shot of him in one of the studios where he normally does his show. A real environmental portrait.
This is a two light set up. One bare strobe high at camera right reaching over the front of the desk and monitors as the key light. The second strobe is on a window sill at camera left bounced off of the white blinds as a soft fill light.
Fish is a really easy person to talk to, which is good for his profession and also really great when shooting a portrait. It’s important to keep your subject engaged, interested and at ease when you are photographing them. Otherwise they will freeze up and look awkward in your photo.
