Portraits of Henry William Oelkers
the man waiting
Henry William Oelkers
These are some images I have from a shoot a little while back with actor/model and all around gentleman, Henry William Oelkers.
Henry is capable of portraying a wide variety of characters. He brought along various costumes and achieved quite a few different looks in the few hours we worked together.
Henry is also somewhat of a celebrity in that he was the model that artist David Jon Kassan sketched live on his ipad which wound up going viral in a short time. It was actually through contact with David that I came to know Henry.
In these portraits, a medium softbox was used for main light, with a snooted strobe hitting the face from slightly above head level to bring an extra glow. Smaller box used for fill and another for rim and hair.
Most work done in Lightroom with some images being brought into Photoshop for a bit extra treatment.
