Washington Nationals Mood Board

Here is a mood board based on my internet research.  I created a few images that could reflect a couple styles:  the first is floating the players in white, the second would use the stadium background as an out-of-focus backdrop.  The reference images reflect the lighting and mood I would like to achieve with these portraits.

Well, it’s not the right team, but by working with images found online I think this one works best and gets the idea across:  a single, flat light source to create a strong shadow.  The low camera angle allows for lighting the subject’s face.  The proud, heroic pose of the player also works well.  And the shadowy contrast creates a nice compliment to the overall lightness of the image.

I dont think the lighting works as well in this image, the two side lights cause the face to blend to closely to the background.  I think its a good example of how well the jersey will look with this kind of treatment.
