Portrait Of The Week Series - No.27: Mike Relm
When taking portraits in a hotel room, you have to work with what you've got - fortunately the room at the Clift was large and stylishly appointed - and I couldn't resist using the large glass table and light shade in the living room as compositional elements.
Mike is lit by daylight coming through a large window to his right.
While the room was being set up for the video interview, I moved Mike to the bedroom and shot an alternate portrait against the floor-to-ceiling drapes using a small soft box.
If Mike was your typical T-shirt/hoody-wearing DJ, these shots may not have been so successful, I think.
