Here’s a new cover image shot for Red Sox Magazine of shortstop Xander Bogaerts and third baseman Rafael Devers. I shot this portrait several weeks ago in the grounds crew warehouse at jetBlue Park in Fort Myers toward the end of Spring Training.
This portrait involved a three light set up – a main light in front with a six foot parabolic umbrella and two rim strobes with gridded strip boxes flanking the players from behind. We put some dirt on the floor to accentuate the gritty look, and topped it off with a few seconds of smoke from a machine. I’m happy with the results! A big thanks to the Fenway South grounds crew for their help in getting the space primed to shoot in, and thanks to Xander and Raffy for their time.
