When it comes to shooting, I really like to control my light. Usually that means, setting up a bunch of lights, metering against my ambient, and going from there. However, when it came to the NYCBMC (NYC Beard & Moustache Championship) I did something a little different. I wanted to go into this preliminary contest with a more documentary style, and so shot on camera flash. I wanted it to be a nice addition to the formal portraits I already had of the 2007 competition, and informal shots I had of the parades that lead up to it. All in all, I’m happy with the results.

Today I had the opportunity to hang with a bunch of the guys I met at the World Beard and Moustache Championhip of 2007 and do a little pig roast extravaganza. They’re in town this week to compete in the NYC Beard and Moustache Championship, which has received amazing press. From coverage on the Regis and Kelly Show, to NY1, and even in the papers, these guys are amped for not only the competition tomorrow, but the one also in Anchorage in May (both of which I’ll be covering).
