Kennedy Photography, LLC, Manassas, Virginia
PHOTOGRAPHER’S NOTE: Kennedy approached the subject and her children at a Pottery Barn in July, offering to take their holiday portrait if they contacted her in December. They took her up on the offer the weekend before Christmas. Kennedy had just purchased a house with huge windows, so she used Christmas wrapping paper to cover some of them to control the overabundance of light.
CAMERA & LENS: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens
EXPOSURE: 1/125 second at f/4, ISO 125
LIGHTING: She used a Profoto B1X with a 4-foot Profoto octabox.
POST-CAPTURE: Texture added in Adobe Photoshop CC and Imagenomic Portraiture 3; vignette added with a Photoshop action from Michelle Parsley
