On Location with Michele and Jack Evans

I photographed DC City Councilman Jack Evans and his wife, Michele, in their Georgetown home for the cover of the Georgetowner Magazine.  I noticed the painting over the mantelpiece perfectly matched Michele's outfit, and Jack had been fitted out with a Hart Schaffner Marx suit from Joseph Abboud's store, "Streets of Georgetown."  There was natural light coming in from the window, but it wasn't enough.  So, I used one 72x36-inch white scrim, and a Photogenic electronic flash, which closely simulated the window light.  The exposure was taken at f8 at 1/15th of a second, the camera on a trip, with ISO of 100.  I particularly liked the softness of the light using this scrim, and it's a very simple setup with a very pleasing result.
