Portrait of Matt Defreitas

This was a great collaboration recently with singer/songwriter Matt Defreitas and Panasonic UK.

I tested the Panasonic S1R and was blown away by the detail of this camera!

For this shot, I wanted to use the balcony of the location to our advantage and shoot this unusual perspective looking down. Matt grabbed the cushion to chill on the floor while I got myself in place and realised all the colours complimented each other nicely so we kept it in!

We also used an optical snoot with a gobo to create this nice pocket of light with a magmod gel and 170cm soft box for an overall fill. Check out my instagram for the BTS pic of this cool setup! @tommyreynolds89

Unusual perspective for the topic - really good!

Cool shot, but I wonder what kind of editing gives this almost cartoonish look. I see the look a lot on fstoppers. Is it excessive dodging and burning?
