John is a Product, Portrait, and Landscape photographer from London, England. He was kind enough to allow me to try a hard light, strip-light style portrait of him. I really liked the results.
I know it’s considered bad form to say it, but as I was working on the close-up below, I kept thinking , “I’ve seen this before.” Then it hit me. Yep, there it was, plain as day:
“Kneel Before Zod.”
When I told him about it, he laughed. “That’s General Zod to you!”
(*I bow my head*) “Yes, my Liege.”
Anders Eriksson is a Still Life, Conceptual, and Lifestyle photographer from Stockholm, Sweden. Don Giannatti, whose studio we were invading for the weekend and our fearless leader of Project 52, had just finished working with him, and I wanted to take the light that I saw him working with a little farther, just to see “what if…”
Thank you, Anders, for letting me do that with you.
