Spotlight Pics: “The Executive”


“The Executive” was created by Jen Hargrove of Big Piney, Wyoming, while she was teaching at a Super Monday class in May of 2017. Jen used a Nikon D810 and a 70-200mm 2.8 lens. Lighting consisted of a 50 inch Westcott Apollow Soft Box at camera-left for the main light and a 42 inch shoot-through umbrella at camera-right. “We were demonstrating the use of simple props to help with storytelling in a simple image for print competition,” she explains. “The subject is Fynnegan, a four year old English Mastiff who is a regular fixture at our studio. We actually create images of him every few months. I was fortunate that he was focused on the other dogs in the studio and gave that great expression.”
