Behind the scenes: Lighting a portrait in Compton by David Honl
Today we have the pleasure to feature "Lighting a portrait in Compton". Written by photojournalist David Honl (website), we hope you enjoy with this story
I recently shot aportrait
of former rival gang members in Compton, California. They laid down their guns and started a catering business out of a small home kitchen, delivering homestyle meals to Compton neighborhoods and the surrounding communities of South Central Los Angeles.
Great guys with a dream coming to life (and their food is delicious!). Check out the short video for some background on what I used to get the shot.
