Lennart is a writer, his speciality is ghostwriting. Stefan works at the Region Archive in Gothenburg. We shot at the Region Archive, because the environment there relates to the subject matter of the presentation, and to Stefan's and Lennart's jobs.
Before the shoot, we had a cup of coffee and talked about what we were going to do. We decided to try a couple of different locations. We ended up shooting at three. It is important to get a variety of photos, so that the client has material to choose from.
For the portraits above I used a fairly wide aperture, f5.6, to blur the background a bit. I used three flashes: Two were set to the left and right, at an angle of about 30-40 degrees. The third flash was put behind the subjects, and used to light the background a bit.
The catchlights in the eyes are important. They make the faces look alive and friendly.
