Movie Critic – Portrait Shots
Today I had the assignment to go photograph Fiore Mastracci, a somewhat controversial local movie critic who broadcasts his “Outtakes with Fiore” show from Bethel Park. He’s controversial because, from what I’ve read, he doesn’t agree with any of the top Hollywood Movie critics. So what. He was a ton of fun to hang around with. Very entertaining and hilarious guy, and it was cool to watch him do his thing while recording his show. I really like the first shot with the dark shadow behind him. I used a non-diffused strobe with a snoot. The more I got to watch him joke around and talk, the more I realized I needed some shots that represented his humorous character a little better. Thus the popcorn shots at the end.
