A night of friends, portraits, beers, and beards, beards, beards!
Ok, so this was not a "Men With Beards" calendar shoot, however that could be a great idea for a later date!
I definitely have been feeling like I didn't shoot as much as I wanted to this winter while I had some downtime. I wanted to start some personal projects and work on my portfolio, and simply shoot and practice. Maybe it was because every week I found myself snow blowing/shoveling/and digging my family and I out of the snow, or the fact that I have 2 jobs, 2 toddlers, and a wife, or maybe it was just laziness. I dunno...
Anyways, I decided to lure a few of my bearded friends into coming to my studio. I told them there would be beer and pizza which generally does the trick. To my surprise it worked! They were in! Now I wanted to challenge myself to work through at least 3-4 different lighting setups (and maybe 3-4 different IPA's). I'm sure none of them were thrilled about being photographed but we had fun it and got a few good shots and I (think I) accomplished my goal.
Here's some of my favorites from the night.
I want to start doing more of these shoots every few months to work on new skills, practice, and become better. I will be looking for volunteers from time to time so be on the lookout on my Facebook page if you are interested in having some fun and playing in front of the camera or email me at Brianmarshphotography@gmail.com to let me know your interested.

Nice job. Very creative ideas for your down time. Good lighting and your friends clean up well.
