This is another of the photographs I created that inspired me to expand my horizons and shoot lifestyle type images.

Shot for Viscusi Elson Interior Design as part of the “Design that Celebrates Life” series this image was created in the designers home. I wanted to be sure to showcase the critical elements of the design as well as capture the spirit of the “bad boy/thrillseeker” concept. I lit the shot as I would for an interior design shoot then modified that slightly to meet the needs of shooting the person. The composition is different from what would have been optimal for the room to ensure we had space for our actor and he was given the “spotlight.” It was fun balancing the focus of attention between the boy and the room I think I did a pretty good job of it.
