One of the best parts of my job is hearing all of the great stories people have to tell. I also love capturing all of their different personalities with a simple set up to highlight their best features. I had this exact opportunity when I was asked to shoot portraits for 2015's D Real Estate Annual. This is a special issue for D CEO honoring the contributing editors for their blog, D Real Estate Daily. I had the privilege of photographing this year's eight featured bloggers. I really enjoyed working on this project and now I am eager to share it with you.

For my fellow photography nerds that are curious about the lighting setup, here are a few details just for you:
- A large softbox was used as the main light source.
- A beauty dish with a 30 degree grid was used as the side light. The grid was used to minimize the spill of light to the background.
- Camera: Fuji X-T1
- Lens: 56mm 1.2
- Lights: Paul C. Buff Einsteins E640
