My second photoshoot with basketball player Rudy Gay is hot of the presses (you can see my first shoot with him here) in the new issue of Dime Magazine. I took these at the basketball courts he played on while growing up in the Baltimore, Maryland area. Most images were taking with a large softbox as a main light and a strip softbox as a rim light. For the shot above and on the left (against the blue door), I used a beauty dish with 30 degree grid to create a spotlight effect on him and the wall.
Rudy is a really cool laid back guy. We all had a fun time on set doing this shoot. I included some behind the scenes and outtakes for your enjoyment (see below).
