Dwight Whitley Magazine Shoot


I was given the amazing opportunity to photograph a bluegrass musician, Dwight Whitley, brother of the legendary late country music star, Keith Whitley. The portraits were taken for Bluegrass Unlimited, a magazine distributed globally. The portraits of Dwight Whitley have been published in the October issue of the magazine. So, now I am able to share some of my favorites!

My Favorite Moment at the Dwight Whitley Portrait shoot

Seeing Keith Whitley's guitar.

I'm not much of a country music fan. However, as a little kid listening to country music with my family, I am familiar with a lot of 80's and 90's country. I know some songs by Keith Whitley. "You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All" and "Don't Close Your Eyes." So, it was pretty cool to see the guitar that Keith Whitley used in his country music career.

Photographer Fun Fact

The black and white portrait with the black background is not studio lighting. I had Whitley stand in front of a black curtain and the light is one window on my left.

While I can get studio lights out and do some creative stuff with artificial light, I was always prefer natural light. Even in a studio setup. Even though the black and white portrait of Dwight Whitley looks like it was doing with a Lightbox, the best kind of Lightbox will always be a window.
