Full time photographer Rondell Lane focuses on portraiture. He posts behind the scenes videos and vlogs on his YouTube channel. We love seeing the reality behind the images - their shoot had to be paused when tons of children showed up at the park. Lane laughed it off and made the scene work regardless. It’s also fun to see his setup; in this video he used the Sony Alpha 7R IV and lit the images on the Westcott FJ400.
