During the second, I had a little situation with the lighting but it came around smooth at the end. I shot Joseph on the white backdrop. the light effect on the background came out nice, which had an gradient effect to it. I also used one light from the upper left side toward joseph which had a light to dark effect on him, making it slightly look dramatic. overall the shoot went well, all i had left to do was do a little adjustment with the photo on photoshop and it will set to go on the cover of the magazine.
