A Man & His Hat by Leanne Lindsay

This photo of a Man & His Hat was taken as part of a study of light, particularly Portrait Light and shot in camera in monochrome. I had to try several different lighting set-ups before I achieved the exact lighting I was after. This was taken using 2 silver-lined studio umbrellas next to each other, bouncing the light back onto the subject, and deliberately underexposing the rest of the image to focus on the light hitting the side of his face. It was taken in a well-lit room. I used a narrow aperture to blur the background. I used a low ISO and faster shutter speed to avoid grain in the image.

Born in Adelaide in 1962, Leanne Lindsay’s family moved to Sydney when she was 12 years old. She was gifted her first camera for her 21st birthday but a break-in saw her precious camera stolen just 3 years later. It was only in her late 50s she was able to afford to replace it and now in her 60s she has discovered a passion that was sadly lost many years ago. She now photographs families and newborns but enjoys architectural photography and landscapes in particular.
