On assignment: Pianist Portraits
This is from a portrait shooting for a young and talented classical piano performer/teacher named Elina Iordanoglu. The whole session was shot before and during one of her recitals, on location.
I guess, by now, the stereotype that classical musicians are boring and serious looking has fallen out of vogue. I tried to present a light, modern and fun look and I was very glad that the final results made Elina happy.
Here is a small sample gallery from the shooting, you can find more technical details following it:
The gear report: the whole session was shot with Fujifilm X-T2 and X-Pro2 cameras, and 16-55mm f2.8, 10-24mm f4, and 56mm f1.2 lenses. Cactus speedlights and triggers were used, along with standard reflectors, a 60cm softbox and convertible umbrellas; plus gels in a couple of cases.
