This past September I was fortunate enough to photograph my second media day for the Washington Wizards and NBA. This was especially hectic as only 12 hours before I was coming home from Orlando after a multiday conference. In addition to the headshots you see on screen when the starting lineup is announced (as well as being used for video game scans) I once again had a creative station setup.
This year instead of using the red and blue gels as I had done in 2021 and with the Mystics earlier in the year I opted for a black backdrop with a simple two light setup. My main light camera left and a hair light back high on the right. It was definitely different than I’ve done with teams in the past but the goal was to get some slightly moody portraits for the guys this year.
