A couple weeks ago, the Timbers made a trade bringing Danny Mwanga to Portland from Philadelphia. The news was a big deal in the city because Danny went to Jefferson High here in Portland and played for Oregon State in college. Hometown boy coming home. The team wanted to feature Mwanga on the cover of the team magazine that came out at the home game on the 24th. Here is the cover.
And here is the inside spread. We wanted to shoot something that showed the city skyline so we took him up onto the roof of JELD-WEN Field. Great city views from up there. We shot a few different angles and we didn’t fall off the edge or injure any athletes, so this shoot was a success! For the photo nerds. This was shot with a speed light in a beauty dish with a 1/4 CTO. The sun was going in and out and I used that as my fill light. Very basic lighting setup, but I think it turned out pretty good.Email This Post
