This was one of the first shoots I've done with a stranger. Now a good friend, Tim was willing to meet with me to model for this shoot. I scouted an area in Brooklyn before shoot and marked where each spot was. We did this one pretty early in the morning to beat the summer heat. One of the spots was part of a private residency. We asked the guard if it was ok to take a few shots. He was reluctant at first but allowed us to take the shots and we were able to get in a few frames. (Turns out some actors and actresses live there!!) Tim's friend was my assistant for that day and I used natural light with a reflector.
This last image was actually an outtake. We decided to add it to the story because it fit his character and is spontaneous and fun.
