One of my favorite groups of people to photograph is Chicago's Neo-Futurists theatre ensemble. They are always a blast to work with and I love their shows! Doing a group is always tough to do without it turning into a school portrait but I think we were able to produce something eye-catching but still free-form in keeping with their improvisational style. I was really happy with the lighting in the shot. I used a giant umbrella, without any diffusion, and cut a hole in it for the lens. Instant $80 giant ring light! I like how the light is hard and soft and even at the same time. It allowed me to work with the positioning of everyone instead of working out lighting problems.
