Mike is the man. Well, he is the mailman. For years now, I have seen Mike hard at work and I have always greeted him with a just a wave. Mike the mailman is hard to miss. His captivating look is unique with his hair, boots & shorts. It wasn't until recently that I finally took the time to talk to him and ask him if I could take his portrait. Mike agreed and come to find out he is a photographer himself. He scuba dives and does under water photography. We coordinated a time and place to meet and thanks to the weather gods, we had a short window before a storm just crashed down on us. I think one of these will make my portfolio so let me know which image you prefer. (click images to view larger)
Some of you have asked about lighting in the comments. Sorry I forgot to include earlier. I used 1 Paul Buff Einstein in a 22" White Beauty Dish with a diffusion sock. Image 1 and 3, the light was on the left and image 2 it was on the right. Canon 7D, Sigma 17-70mm @28mm, ƒ/8.0, 1/125s, ISO 100, Pocket Wizards.
