In December's issue of 5280 Magazine, I have a spread of pictures shot for a story about a non-traditional holiday party. There was enough sushi at the shoot to sink a ship.
The party featured neighbors, friends, and professional peers who often get together throughout the year. The mix of friends brings smorgasbord of backgrounds and thus a little of everything. A traditional holiday party is out of the question.
This shoot was unique because I lit and shot the whole party with hot lights instead of strobes. I wanted to create a warm and natural light that would feel "real" and not "lit."
