Often portraits, especially those slated for a cover, can be well involved productions with lights, assistants, and location scouting. For the Colorado Rockies first baseman, Jason Giambi, the concept for the August cover was kept relatively simple. One light source, that being the afternoon sun and a reflector to add the fill. The editors at the magazine wanted a final image that had a black and white documentary feel while utilizing the steel beams of Coors Field as a way to describe Giambi’s strength. Keep checking back as there will be a post soon about the more complex shoots described earlier. As always, thanks for looking.
