My buddy Taylor Sieg just graduated from Oregon State in Apparel Design. He's living in Portland again and has been making a bunch of bags recently. I came up with this idea to shoot him sewing in his back yard, and finally I got around to shooting it. The idea was really to shoot something he could use, probably as his "about me" photo on his website/blog.
More photos after the jump.
This was also my first time really using my new Alien Bees light that I got myself for my birthday and I have to say, it did a pretty stellar job.
I also shot a few product shots of his bags, but I haven't edited them yet. Should be up tomorrow, but in the meantime here's a BTS shot from that:
