One Light Portrait Project
I've been photographing everyone at my workplace. I have one light, a grey wall, and about 5 minutes per person.
Role: Photographer

These are lovely. Could you comment on what motivated you to do it? Is it just an expression of your affection for these nice people, or a kind of experiment, or are you looking for something?

These are really nice. It's great to see the behind-the-scenes folks. How many people work on The Daily Show?

Thanks folks. I've got a few motivations...I wanted to do a proof-of-concept for this lighting setup for myself. I started asking my closer friends at the show, and next thing I knew I had about 1/3 of the people there. So I figured I might as well shoot for everyone. In exchange for their time, they get a headshot, which a large percentage of them usually need.

And it's about 100 people at the show, give or take.

These are cool. What camera? What light?

At the studio I shoot with a Canon 5DIII and the light is a cheapo Alien Bees 1600w monolight with an umbrella. I couldn't be happier with either.
