Theatre Actor Antonio Rodriguez Head Shots

Typically I shoot more environmental portraiture, but lately I have been commissioned to shoot head shots, typically for actors. This session was with my friend and theatre actor, Antonio Rodriguez. He just moved to Chicago this past winter to be with some of his family and pursue acting more seriously. He needs to be on top of his game and wanted some good shots. He loved the way they turned out. Honestly, he made it pretty easy. It was fun a shoot and I am happy with some of the backgrounds we came upon and various expressions we were able to get. Equipment wise, I rolled with my mark 111, a reflector and a 24-105 for some of the shots, but mainly stuck with my 5omm to get some good depth of field. Lets be honest, I am just a sucker for a 50mm. I of course strayed away from some head shots here and there to get a few environmental portraits for him to keep and to change things up and keep it interesting. Also, it doesn’t hurt to for my portfolio. Here are the images he chose.
