GABE HAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY
At the suggestion of Larry Baker, I reached out to Rip as part of my Create Iowa City project. He is an Iowa City based performer, who has acted in several Iowa City theater productions, including Atticus Finch in “To Kill a Mockingbird”, and Juror #8 in “12 Angry Men”.
For these photos, I did a simple umbrella setup. Light off to the side, closed down just a little over the flash. There was a ceiling fan that made getting the light where I wanted it a little difficult. I tried to use a grid spot, but I had too much harsh light spilling on the background, giving the photos a harsher look than what I was needing. Lighting challenges aside, Rip was easy going. We talked about his performances and how his parrots, Dickens and Harry, like to make a racket once in a wile.

Thank you Rip, and I look forward to seeing a production come summer.
