Technician deputy photo editor Ryan Parry said:
This week’s photo of the week is Tyler Andrew’s portrait of David Buffaloe, the instrument shop supervisor at the Bio&Ag Research Shop. Tyler was able to light the subject perfectly through external flash and the natural lighting of the shop. He also took the time to get to know Buffaloe and you can tell he did so because of how comfortable Buffaloe looks and his pose in the portrait. Tyler was also able to use a second external flash to light the background of his subject that shows that he’s standing in front of stacked metal sheets that would be used often in a shop like the Bio&Ag Research Shop. Overall, Tyler executed the portrait extremely well, capturing the subject and his workspace all in a well-lit shot.
