Basketball Player Portrait

March 1, 2010 By Joe Morahan

 A portrait of a basketball player in front an old hoop. Branden is a serious basketball and football player as well as a sports model. He is lit with dramatic lighting and harsh ratios across the photo. This was shot for stock work with CorbisImages

Shot details: f/13; 1/250 sec; ISO 100
Focal Length 235mm; EF70-200 f/2.8L IS USM +1.4x
Camera Details: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III

A portrait of an athlete after working out. He is sweaty and taking a drink of water. He looks as though as was chiseled from stone. He looks off toward the horizon as the day comes to an end.

Branden is one hell of a sports model. Nothing is impossible and a real pleasure to work with. I rarely say anything, but he had to have been one of the greatest people I have ever worked with.
