photo of Art Fisher by Steve Malone

At right is a 2014 photo of A. Arthur Fisher as the official Old Spanish Days photographer, taken by the Santa Barbara News Press (photo credit: Steve Malone) for an article about Mr. Fisher's Fiesta coffee table book. This is an excellent photo for several reasons. First, the backdrop choice is relevant and interesting. Yet, there are no significant features of the background that interfere with the main subject in a distracting way. The main subject was lighted by one simple off-camera strobe. The mission's door is centered between Mr. Fisher and his camera. It's an overcast day, so there are no hard shadows other than the modest shadow created by the strobe, which adds some gentle depth to Mr. Fisher's face and opens up the shadow detail in his black camera gear. There's a beginning, middle, and end to the story. The exposure is excellent with flattering flesh tones.
