Detroit wished me a happy birthday

img_6366-edit-edit-copy This past weekend was my birthday weekend. Me and the lady set out to visit the city Ann Arbor in Michigan. We drove about 5 or 6 hours before we arrived to Ann Arbor and unbeknownst to us there was football game about to start. There was no where to park for under $30.

We have been eyeballing (wow, the word "eyeballing" apparently is in this computers dictionary, I didn't think it would be) this area for quite sometime. This is our 2nd or 3rd shoot there.   What we always enjoyed about the atmosphere here at night is the light that trails in-between the stairs all the way to the top. That light provided us with our primary (and only) light source. Also, the white metal rails and metal meshing in between I found to be the perfect complement for black leather.

We envisioned only the pillar light to illuminate the entire scene. We were keeping it as simple as possible since the police station is outside the window. Trying to make it a "quick" shoot. Anyhow, have a wonderful week and here's the shoot info! Comment with any questions. 🙂 Use this to share your lighting setup or to document your setup for future reference.
