We were thrilled to have the opportunity to create portraits for Briggs & Rogers, a PR and Marketing firm out of Fort Myers. They are doing the marketing for highly acclaimed artist Peter Max when he comes to Naples this February (February 7 & 8). Peter Max is painting a portrait of both women and he will be using our portraits. Everything from lighting to posing effect the impression of a photograph and it is important to think through what impression you want to make. I wanted these to be fresh and inviting. By looking at the camera, they engage the viewer. Having them look away would have created a different impression. Both women are strong and I wanted to convey a sense of that strength tempered with a slightly softer pose. Peter Max portraits are colorful additions to photographs and I thought it important to have soft, but noticeable shadowing to give the faces shape and depth. These were my two favorites from the shoot. I feel they convey a sense of beauty and softness yet are very engaging. I am looking forward to seeing which pictures the two woman will choose.
